Hi, I’m Christian the founder of Ecosia. During the last week, installs of the Ecosia app have increased by more than a 1000%. Following the devastating fires in the Amazon, people around the world are looking for ways they can help and with Ecosia, they can. Last month we pledged to plant one million trees in Brazil in response to Bolsonaro’s damaging policies. Thanks to all our new users Ecosia now has enough resources to plant an additional 2M trees Brazil! So over the next year, Ecosia will plant an additional 3 million trees with our reforestation partners in Brazil. These trees will add to the 2.2 million trees already planted in previous years. The trees will be planted in the Atlantic Forest which stretches along Brazil’s coast. This forest – or the 8% that remains of it – is, above all, a warning of what will become of the Amazon Forest, if a different path is not taken. Severino Ribeiro, Director of our partner organization in Brazil, told us that “The trees Ecosia will plant are more than just trees, they’re a sign that in times of crisis, we all hold together – Brazil and the international community” And that’s what these 3 million trees stand for. Thank you for making it all possible.
