If we want trash-free seas, that means cleanups, everybody, everywhere.

Join the ranks of more than 11 million people that have come together around the world each fall for the past 31 years to fight for trash-free seas and coastlines. Saturday,  September 16th is this year’s Ocean Conservancy’s International Coastal Cleanup (ICC), named one of the largest volunteer efforts in the world. Last year, the Ocean Conservancy organized more than half a million people in 112 countries to remove 18 million pounds of trash from the world’s oceans and coastlines. Not only does the organization clean up our shorelines, it helps change behavior. In communities where coastal cleanups have been organized, less debris is generated locally following the event.
