Every year in September, more than half-a-million people in 100 countries remove millions of pounds of trash from beaches and waterways all over the world—and collect data on what they find. This year is the 25th anniversary of the International Coastal Cleanup and it will take place on Saturday, September 25th. In partnership with organizations and individuals across the globe, Ocean Conservancy’s International Coastal Cleanup engages people to remove trash and debris from the world’s beaches and waterways, identify the sources of debris, and change the behaviors that cause marine debris in the first place.
The NOAA Marine Debris Program is a participant with NOAA staff, family, and friends across the nation! This year will be our 6th annual NOAA Cleanup Day and we have cleanup locations in Washington DC, Seattle, and Hawaii. The NOAA Marine Debris Program is also a proud sponsor of this worldwide cleanup event. Wherever you are, get involved and help keep the sea free of debris!
