TeamSeas and The Ocean Cleanup
TeamSeas is a fundraising campaign, initiated by Mark Rober and MrBeast, content creators on YouTube. The campaign’s goal is to raise 30 million USD to remove 30 million pounds of trash polluting coastal regions, rivers, and ultimately oceans. The funds raised will go to two organizations, split equally: The Ocean Cleanup and Ocean Conservancy. Watch Mark Rober and Boyan Slat chat about the Interceptor solution in the Dominican Republic in this video.
Stopping plastic before it enters the ocean is an essential part of reducing ocean plastic pollution. The Ocean Cleanup is already cleaning up in rivers worldwide, intercepting over 1 million kg (2.2 million lbs) to date. With the help of TeamSeas, we will be able to fund additional river cleanup solutions.
The TeamSeas campaign will help fund both the operation of some currently deployed Interceptors and the deployment of additional Interceptor solution deployments. Working with local partners such as the UNDP, The Ocean Cleanup will target rivers in Indonesia and the Dominican Republic. Because we must work with the right partners to ensure we are deploying the right solutions in the right places, new deployments with the TeamSeas campaign will begin in 2023.
