More Information on Free The Ocean's Video Trivia

What is Video Trivia?

Video Trivia is when special guests read the daily trivia on FreeTheOcean.com through recorded videos – think Jeopardy style! Visitors to the site answer the question the same as always but it’s read by the guest. ⁠For every person who answers the day’s question, Free the Ocean funds the removal of a piece of plastic from the ocean and coastlines. The funds support two amazing groups who are actively removing and repurposing plastic from the ocean. Every Video Trivia feature lasts 24-hours.

Who are the guests?

Free the Ocean Video Trivia guests will include a range of inspiring people who all have one thing in common – a love for our ocean, our planet, and a desire to help protect our home. Think scientists, actors, CEO’s, musicians, athletes, educators, and more. We’re excited to make Video Trivia a fun and unique platform for people of all paths to help Free the Ocean make a difference on plastic pollution!

When is the next feature?

Video Trivia features will be live on the site twice a month. Our next feature is scheduled for October 8th. Set a reminder to check out video trivia and see who the special guest is!

For me the environment is the single most important issue facing us today. We must take care of the oceans as they have taken care of us. Free the Ocean is doing their part to help our planet and I fully support their wonderful efforts.

The ocean is pure magic. Whether it be the power of a wave tumbling me through the shore break or the thrill of discovering a he‘e (octopus) peeking out of the reef – the energy, diversity, and beauty of the ocean are constant reminders of how incredible life on earth is.

The ocean is my safe haven. When I dip my head under the surface, the world as I know it goes silent and an entire new world emerges in front of my eyes. The ocean and the marine life I have been lucky enough to encounter have been my teachers in more ways than I can count and has made me more conscious, humble, grateful and aware. I feel most “me” surrounded by the sea.

The ocean is for me the representation of the most feminine spirit. It is the place where life came to be, it is still the place that keeps us alive; it can be as gentle and loving as a mother and as wild and angry as a betrayed lover, but no matter what it’s a place of beauty, discovery, and wonder.
