MrBeast And Mark Rober’s #TeamSeas Is Raising $30 Million For Ocean Cleanup

Oct 29, 2021

Two years ago, MrBeast and Mark Rober’s ambitious #TeamTrees initiative raised more than $20 million to help the Arbor Day Foundation plant 20 million trees around the world. In just 55 days , the effort attracted attention and donations from dozens of public figures, including Elon Musk (who gave $1 million), Twitter cofounder/CEO Jack Dorsey ($350,000), YouTube CEO Susan Wojcicki ($200,000), Shopify CEO Tobias Lütke ($1,000,001) and CTO Jean-Michel Lemieux ($100,100), Salesforce cofounder/CEO Marc Benioff ($900,000), and GitHub developer Scott Chacon ($250,001). Now the #TeamTrees team is back–with an even loftier goal. Subscribe for daily Tubefilter Top Stories Subscribe In his latest upload , MrBeast (aka Jimmy Donaldson) unveiled #TeamSeas, a YouTube Originals-backed fundraiser aiming to bring in $30 million to clear 30 million pounds of trash from oceans, rivers, and beaches. Like they did with #TeamTrees, Donaldson (who has 72.5 million subscribers on YouTube) and Rober (20 million) have partnered with environmental organizations to pull off their philanthropic feat. Half of the money raised will go to the Washington, D.C.-based Ocean Conservancy . Thanks to nearly 17 million volunteers working with its International Coastal Cleanup program, the Conservancy has removed more than 341 million pounds of trash from oceans and beaches since 1986. #TeamSeas funds will go toward the Conservancy’s cleanups, Donaldson says. The other 50% of funds will go to The Ocean Cleanup , a Netherlands-based, engineering-focused nonprofit that develops hi-tech solutions to waterway pollution. Donaldson indicates that funds given to The Ocean Cleanup will support the Interceptor, a giant, solar-powered robot that trawls rivers and removes trash. The Ocean Cleanup says that 80% of plastic in the world’s oceans flows into them from rivers, and the Interceptor is “capable of operating in the majority of the world’s most polluting rivers.” The organization’s goal is to have Interceptors deployed in 1,000 heavily polluted rivers within five years, it says . Between the two nonprofits, every $1 donated to #TeamSeas will equal one pound of trash removed from oceans and beaches, Donaldson says. At press time, around two hours after #TeamSeas’ debut, more than $1.5 million has been donated through the initiative’s YouTube Giving fundraiser. YouTube Originals has pledged to contribute $400,000 to #TeamSeas. Folks interested in donating can do so on YouTube or on #TeamSeas’ official website .
