How 50 million trees have changed the world

Back in 2014, we planted one tree per minute in Burkina Faso. Today, we’re planting a new tree every second across 21 reforestation projects across the planet. And thanks to you, we’ve now planted 50 million trees in total.

These trees have absorbed 2.5 million tonnes of toxic CO2 from our atmosphere. But they are doing so much more. They are creating a habitat for chimpanzees in Uganda. In the Sahel region of Burkina Faso, they stop the desert from moving south. They are restoring water supplies and soil fertility in Peru. And they are providing more dependable, diverse and plentiful harvests to smallholder farmers around the world.

That’s why 50 million trees matter. Thank you for joining us on this journey. We’re just getting started.

Thanks for watching. Oh, and did you know we just launched brand new designs on our online shop? The sales from each t-shirt funds the planting of 20 trees at one of our reforestation sites:

Ecosia is the search engine that plants trees. Every month we invest at least 80% of our surplus in tree planting projects all over the world.
