After the unimaginable success of #TeamTress, YouTuber’s MrBeast and Mark Rober are coming together to clean the world’s dirtiest beaches and oceans with their new campaign, ‘Team Seas’.
MrBeast has teamed up with fellow YouTuber Mark Rober to launch TeamSeas, a fundraiser set to topple his previous goal of 20 million trees planted with TeamTrees by cleaning up 30 million pounds of trash from the ocean.
Two years ago, YouTuber and philanthropist Jimmy ‘MrBeast’ Donaldson teamed up with the Team Tree initiative to help raise $20,000,000 and plant a massive 20m trees. The goal was ultimately met in just two months, ending several weeks before the deadline of January 1st, 2020.
This year, the creator has teamed up with scientific YouTuber and engineer Mark Rober, alongside hundreds of other creators, to form TeamSeas in an effort to topple last year’s goal and raise 30m. Every dollar going is towards cleaning up one pound of trash from the world’s oceans.
In his latest video, MrBeast said, “For every one dollar you guys donate… one pound less of trash will be in the ocean.”
The organisers of the campaign are said to have enlisted content creators across the globe from 145 different countries to promote their effort, including TommyInnit, LinusTechTips, TierZoo and Hannah Stocking.
TeamSeas has set up a handy tracker and donation portal for anyone interested in helping the initiative.
