The impact counter

What is the impact counter?

To help you understand your impact with Ecosia, we show you an estimate of how many trees you have helped us plant. 

This estimate is based on your number of searches, as well as how many people have begun using Ecosia through an invite from you. To learn how to invite a friend, please see here.

How is my impact calculated?

Like other search engines, Ecosia gets paid by advertisers to show ads next to your search results. We then use that revenue 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 can take approximately 50 searches to plant a tree.
