The International Coastal Cleanup Day is coming up fast! This year, on September 17, we are aiming to collect more than 11 million pounds of trash from our coastlines. We need your help to make this happen!
What is the International Coastal Cleanup?
The International Coastal Cleanup is an annual event that takes place on September 17th. It is a day where citizens from all around the world come together to clean up the coastlines and waterways.
The International Coastal Cleanup Day came into existence more than 30 years ago. It was founded by Linda Maraniss and Kathy O’Hara, both of whom worked at the Ocean Conservancy, a nonprofit environmental agency that specializes in formulating resolutions and policies at federal and governmental levels.
INTERNATIONAL COASTAL CLEANUP DAY DATES
How Does the ICC Work?
International Coastal Cleanup Day is an annual event coordinated by the International Coastal Cleanup Association (ICCA). Volunteers from around the world collect trash and debris from coastal and marine habitats. This year’s cleanup will take place on September 17th.
The ICCA works with partners to organize local cleanups in countries around the world. In some cases, organized cleanups are conducted as part of larger campaigns like Plastic Free September or World Oceans Day. Other times, local cleanups are simply a way for people to get involved and help improve their local environment.
The goal of the ICC is to reduce the amount of plastic and other waste that ends up in our oceans. By collecting trash and debris from coastal and marine habitats, we can help to make a difference.
How to Participate in the ICC?
International Coastal Cleanup Day is coming up soon, and you can join in the fun! There are a number of ways to participate, including participating in your local city or county’s cleanup event.
If you’re unable to participate in a local event, you can still help by donating your time or materials to an ICC organizer. You can also make a donation to the ICC online.
Whatever your involvement, remember to keep our oceans clean! We need everyone’s help to make a difference.
