➤ About OpenTabs
➤ How it works
OpenTabs transforms your "new tab" page and includes incredible features such as custom widgets and beautiful wallpapers. We raise money through unobtrusive advertisements which allow us to save trees for free, simply by opening tabs.
☆ 5 Tabs Opened = 1 Tree Saved ☆
➤ Your privacy and trust matters
We are a non-profit committed to protecting your privacy and using your data responsibly. We're interested in trees, not your data: we don’t see your searches, we don’t track the websites you visit, and we don’t create personal profiles. The ads on our extension are delivered by our advertising partners, who may collect anonymized data in order to show you ads you'll be interested in.
➤ We don’t plant trees
☆ "Planting trees is good. Saving existing forests is better." - WWF ☆
We made an active decision to save existing trees rather than plant new ones because compelling studies show that planting trees won’t be enough to tackle climate change and that efforts on rainforest conservation lead to a more sustainable and lasting change. Here are three facts you might not know:
✓ Forest conservation needs 30x less land to have the same climate mitigation outcome as planting trees.
✓ Forest protection efforts help protect the natural habitat of thousands of species and local communities that depend on natural resources.
✓ Forest conservation typically costs half as much as forest restoration efforts.
➤ Non-profit tech & radically transparent
The world needs more transparency, so we've taken on the challenge to set an example for what it means to be radically transparent. Not only do we disclose our annual financial reports detailing our impact and activities, but we also publish a quarterly overview of our income, impact, and expenses. We cap our expenses to make sure that we are always putting the planet first, and we dedicate at least 60% of our revenues towards mitigating climate change. Although we are a hot tech startup, OpenTabs is also a non-profit and therefore does not have any shareholders or pay any dividends. Any “profits” will forever stay within the organisation and will eventually be reinvested or used to fight climate change.
➤ OpenTabs vs. alternatives
☆ Ecosia ☆
We love Ecosia! Although many people think we are competitors, we are actually not — they are a search engine and we only change your “new tab” page. We recommend you use Ecosia’s search engine with the OpenTabs extension to maximise your impact.
☆ OceanHero ☆
We’re a big fan of OceanHero’s cause but we think they should be more transparent — they are a for-profit company and they do not disclose their financial reports. You can also use their search engine on OpenTabs.
☆ Tab for a Cause ☆
They are a great option if you want to support numerous charities, but keep in mind that they only donate 30% of their revenues.
