Download CKEditor and Plant a Tree!

Green TreeAs a way of saying thanks to the loyalty of every CKEditor user around the world, in the course of the CKEditor 10 Year Anniversary celebrations, CKSource will be donating to various rainforest tree-planting charities based on your activity!

Help us save rainforests by participating and inviting others to use and download CKEditor. Several environmental organizations that plant rainforest trees have been selected around the world. Each week, CKSource will plant a tree for every 15 unique CKEditor downloads! You will be able to follow our eco charity through regular updates on our social pages:

Your downloads will lead to a greener world! Who would have imagined that using an Open Source web application could have an environmental impact on the world around us. Well... we have, so get moving and download CKEditor!
