About Ecosia:

Ecosia is a social business dedicated to environmental sustainability via the donation of revenue to WWF’s rainforest protection programs. Its best-known service, the search engine mask at Ecosia.org, is powered by Bing and Yahoo. It lets an essential and routine task – searching the web – double as an ecological contribution: not only are Ecosia search emissions offset, but every click on a sponsored ad within Ecosia translates into either cents for the environment – or cents for generating more cents for the environment. Cents may not sound like much, but they certainly add up: Ecosia was able to generate just under 125,000 Euros (164,000 USD) for rainforest protection in just the first year.

Here is a short video on how Ecosia works:
