Live Streamed Goldfish Tanks Calls Attention to Ocean Garbage

Project Kaisei's bold digital fundraiser, "Save Kai" is highlighted on influencial marketing blog

For the past two weeks a Goldfish named Kai has been living on Facebook in an aquarium-sized garbage patch filled with plastic bottles, caps and toothbrushes. Filmed 24/7 Kai brings a massive global issue right to our computer screens.

So, can one Goldfish inspire action against plastic pollution? You can see the difference your donations make by tuning in to Kai's page on Facebook every morning at 9am PST and watch plastic being removed from Kai's future home.

Donations made to Project Kaisei help fund its third ocean cleanup expdition, set for this summer.
