It is a sad fact that the ocean contains millions of pounds of harmful plastics and trash. All kinds of animals are suffocating or choking on the trash. Fortunately, a fundraiser has popped up, #TeamSeas, created by popular content creators, MrBeast and Mark Rober, and it is making a huge effort for ocean animals. MrBeast has raised $10,000,000 of his $30,000,000 goal. For every $1 donated, one pound of trash is picked up.

You may remember MrBeast’s #TeamTrees effort from last year, where he planed 20 million tress all over the world and is till planting trees today, but role does Mark Rober play in this? Mark Rober and gaming company, Razer, have assisted the company in building a trash eating robot.

#TeamSeas’ goal is to rid the ocean of 14,000,000 kilograms of trash in the ocean, so we’ve still got a way to go, but the hard work will pay off.
