Ecosia is the search engine that plants trees

Planting a tree may seem like an easy thing to do. But we have learned in our ten years as a tree-planting search engine that many things can go wrong in the process of reforestation. That’s why we don’t take tree pledges lightly, which promise to plant billions, sometimes trillions of trees without specifying where, how or even to what ecological end. You need to be able to answer all of those questions to make sure that your trees will have a positive impact on nature and people, and indeed that they’ll survive in the first place.

How to make Air Bonsai :


“A Japanese firm called Hoshinchu is producing kits for customers to produce their own floating versions of tiny house plants called Air Bonsai.

The tiny trees contain spongy balls of moss that contain magnets that sit above a porcelain base that similarly contain magnets which repel those found in the moss. 

How do the trees float :

The Air Bonsai kit is made up of two parts – an ‘energy base’ and the ‘little star’ which floats a few centimetres above the base.

The ‘stars’ are spongy balls of moss 2.3-inches (6cm) across containing magnets weighing around 250 grams

The porcelain base contains magnets and a rotating mechanism and is connected to the mains by an AC adapter.

The magnets repel each other to create the illusion of levitation. 

To plant the trees, customers poke a hole in the ball and add the cutting of the plant or a seedling. 

The website shows a number of bonsai trees which have been grown for a number of years spinning off the ground.

An additional pot is available in the form of a lava stone, instead of the moss ball.”
