Ecosia's Mission

There are all kinds of problems in our modern world that need fixing. At Ecosia, we want to do our share to find and support innovative solutions to as many of these problems as we can. As part of our mission to cultivate a more environmentally, socially and economically sustainable world, we want to support the planting of one million new trees in Brazil’s Atlantic Forest by August 2014.
