The Ocean Cleanup with TeamSeas

The ocean is facing a plastic crisis, with an estimated 12.7 million tons of plastic waste entering the waters every year. According to WWF Germany, the majority of this waste settles in deeper waters, where 80 million tons of plastic have accumulated. To combat this issue, in 2021 Spreadshop launched a campaign to raise awareness and funds for “The Ocean Cleanup.”

Inspired by the global fundraising project led by US influencers MrBeast and Mark Rober, Spreadshop’s “TeamSeas” campaign aimed to remove 30 million pounds of plastic waste by the end of 2021. For every dollar donated by supporters, one pound of trash will be removed. The campaign centred around reusable bottles, and Spreadshop has pledged to donate one dollar to “The Ocean Cleanup” for every insulated drinking bottle sold. Additionally, the brand aims to promote sustainable alternatives to single-use plastic bottles.

In just two weeks, Spreadshop’s fundraiser removed over a ton of plastic waste from the oceans. Director of Spreadshop, Dennis Dörfl, states, “We are thrilled by the huge willingness of our community to support our commitment. Our partner community shares our strong awareness of sustainability and are aware of the need to do something about the dramatic pollution of our oceans. Together, we were able to donate around 3,600 US dollars to ‘The Ocean Cleanup’ in a very short time.”

To further its commitment, Spreadshop is receiving support from its umbrella brand, Spread Group, who is donating an additional 3,600 USD to “The Ocean Cleanup.” Since 2013, “The Ocean Cleanup” has been working to remove plastic waste from the oceans using an autonomously operating collection system. Spreadshop’s campaign is a vital step in the fight against ocean plastic pollution, and the brand’s dedication to raising awareness and funds for this important cause is commendable. The project was a success, raising over $30million.
