Famous YouTuber “MrBeast” has decided to plant 20 million trees by 2020 to celebrate 20 million subscribers.
To complete this task, the content creator has teamed up with other well-known YouTubers, including Mark Rober, a content creator focused on science and engineering, iJustine, a female tech YouTuber, and Rhett and Link, a duo that does daily podcasts, including the well known “Good Mythical Morning”.
The project, known as “#teamtrees”, has partnered up with the Arbor Day Foundation to deliver the product. The Arbor Day Foundation is a non-profit organisation dedicated to educating about trees, as well as helping conserve them. They are the largest organisation dedicated to planting trees, with over 1 million members, partners and supporters.
MrBeast's team started off by planting a few trees by hand
The foundation has agreed to plant 1 tree for every $1 (£0.78 at the time of writing) donated to the project.
