Celebrating Ecosia's Monumental Achievement: 200 Million Trees Planted

A Milestone of Green Triumph

A significant milestone in environmental restoration and sustainability was recently reached. Ecosia, the community-driven ecological warrior, has achieved a monumental feat: the planting of 200 million trees.

This isn't just a number; it represents a thriving green legacy, a tribute to the collective effort of the Ecosia community in combating climate change and restoring ecosystems. Good work, and good news!

From Humble Beginnings to Global Impact

Ecosia's journey began with small but firm steps. Becoming Germany's first certified B Corp in 2014 was an early indication of the commitment to sustainable business practices. The first visit to a tree planting project in Burkina Faso in 2016 laid the foundation for what would become a global mission.

The celebration of 10 million trees in 2017 was just the beginning.

A Turning Point for the Planet

2018 marked a significant turning point. Ecosia's CEO, Christian Kroll, made a legally binding commitment, ensuring that the company could never be sold and that all profits would forever be dedicated to the planet.

This pledge has led to the planting and protection of 1,250 species of trees across 95,000 locations worldwide. Each tree planted is a living, breathing testament to the Ecosia community's dedication to environmental conservation.

Beyond Planting Trees: A Holistic Approach

Ecosia's vision extends beyond tree planting. The establishment of solar plants since 2020, generating enough renewable energy to power all Ecosia searches twice over, underscores a commitment to holistic environmental solutions. Investments in regenerative agriculture, climate tech solutions, and the diversification of search providers demonstrate a broader approach to ecological restoration.

A Call to Keep Growing

With each search and share, the Ecosia community has propelled this vision forward. The goal now is to not just rest on these laurels but to reach even greater heights. If everyone reading shares Ecosia with just one friend, reaching 300 million trees could be a reality sooner than expected.

As Christian Kroll, CEO of Ecosia, states, "Here's to 200 million trees, and counting." This achievement is a collective success, a beacon of hope, and a call to action for everyone who dreams of a greener, more sustainable world.

The Ecosia community stands as a shining example of what can be achieved when we come together for a common cause.

Here's to the next milestone, to more green, and to a healthier planet.
