International Coastal Cleanup

September 18, 2021

Ocean Conservancy's International Coastal Cleanup (ICC) is the world's largest volunteer effort for ocean's health and is being conducted every third Saturday of September of each year. In partnership with volunteer organizations and individuals around the globe, ICC engages people to remove trash from the world’s beaches and waterways, identify the sources of debris and change the behaviors that allow trash into the water in the first place. The Cleanup also aims to raise environmental awareness and provide information which will guide and influence governments, corporations and industries in developing smart solutions to the marine debris problem.

In 2020, many of us were not able to gather together for the ICC due to the Covid - 19 pandemic. This year, we’re making the ICC a time for people to reconnect with each other after so much time apart. Let’s try to connect and collect in the safest possible way through small group cleanups armed with our PPEs and grabbers.

Download Ocean Conservancy's Clean Swell app and document the trash you collect around the clock or start your own Cleanup at a beach near you.
