Ecosia Had 1,150% User Spike as the Amazon Fires Continue

Ecosia is a search engine that puts advertising profits towards planting trees. The said search engine was reported to have had a 1,150% surge in users because of the destructive fires in the Amazon rainforests.

Ecosia, which donates most of its revenue to reforestation, enjoyed a spike in popularity last week in response to worldwide alarm over the destruction in Brazil and neighbouring countries.
The rush by internet users to help tree-planting emerged as G7 countries agreed to create a $20m (£16.3m) fund to help Amazon countries fight wildfires.

Thanks to the surge in downloads of its app and browser extension, Ecosia states that they can plant a tree every 0.8 seconds.
