Would you switch search engines for a better environment? Ecosia is a site that plants trees when you use it.

How does it work? Well, the search works just like any other search engine. For the tree planting, Ecosia earmarks its excess advertising income to a tree planting program—over €2.5 million since 2009 which has resulted in 4 million trees.
