Ecosia is a search engine that plants trees. They use over 80 percent of their profits to fund reforestation work all over the world using money made from ad revenue. Their goal - plant 1 billion trees by 2020. The company now plants trees in Burkina Faso, Indonesia (Borneo), Madagascar, Nicaragua, Peru, and Tanzania.
Ecosia wants to create a world where the environment no longer needs protecting, and with averaging 1 million trees every few weeks. Jacey Bingler is Ecosia's Head of Communications. She tells us about her former jobs working in advertising and how she happily transitioned to a job at Ecosia, working to spread the message of tree planting and helping to reverse climate change.
