The personal counter
The personal counter in the top right corner of the search results page shows the number of searches you have performed with Ecosia.
The personal counter is there to help you to track your impact and a reminder that by using Ecosia, you’re helping to plant trees.
The amount of searches it takes to plant a tree varies, depending on when you search, where you search from, and what you search for. For example, in Germany a person using Ecosia on their laptop takes approximately 50 searches to plant a tree.
