How amazing is this -- scientists have discovered mushrooms that can devour plastic waste in a matter of weeks.
Right now 91% of plastics we use can’t be recycled -- and every minute a truckload-worth is dumped in the ocean, suffocating sea life and spreading pollutants across shores.
But top scientists believe these mushrooms could eat up to half of the plastic waste being dumped in the ocean -- and they need your help to scale up this groundbreaking research.
Our friends at Ocean Blue Project are working with a NASA scientist to isolate and reproduce plastic-eaters for industrial use. If 5000 of us chip in, we can pay for lab equipment they need to scale up their research -- and help rid the planet of plastic waste. Are you in?
