Ecosia funds the planting of a new tree on average every 2 seconds.  A click on one of the search ads next to Ecosia’s search results generates revenue for Ecosia paid by the advertiser, just like how Google works. Ecosia converts at least 80% of monthly profits to plant trees in Burkina Faso, Madagascar, Peru, Indonesia, Morocco, Brazil, Nicaragua, Ethiopia, Tanzania and many more countries. 

However, even if you don’t click an ad, Ecosia still earns  Euro € 0.5 cents; it costs Euro € 0.22 cents to plant a tree, thus about 45 searches funds the planting of one tree.
