Ocean Conservancy: International Coastal Cleanup


Ocean Conservancy: International Coastal Cleanup

Every year on the third Saturday of September, all the best people have the same social engagement: Get together and clean up the beaches around the world. The event is the International Coastal Cleanup, and this year that date is September 19th. Last year 400,000 volunteers in 100 countries and 42 US states collected more than 6.8 million pounds of trash. Instead of just removing the trash, people are encouraged to look for the source as well, and think of solutions to help people change their acts of littering in the first place. You can sign up to clean up on the Ocean Conservancy site.
