Welcome to the #TeamSeas 2021 FAQ section. Below are answers to the basic questions for the #TeamSeas Event.
What is Team Seas?
#TeamSeas is a global movement powered by the internet and united by a singular belief that our planet is too important to be trashed with plastic bottles, bags, and fishing nets. We’re on a mission to raise a massive amount of money and attention to remove an even more massive amount of trash from our ocean, rivers, and beaches. And while we know there’s a lot to clean up, we’re not letting the size of the problem stop us. Instead, #TeamSeas is here to roll up our sleeves on an issue we’re passionate about and prove that we can make an impact. No more waiting; no more asking for permission. We’re just doing.
That’s because doing big things is what we do best. In 2019, we asked the internet to come together for #TeamTrees. We had a goal of raising $20M to plant 20M trees, and we smashed it in two months. People across 200 countries and territories around the world made over 800,000 donations totaling more than $23M (and counting). Now, we’re getting the team back together for a new and bigger mission to once again prove we can change the world.
