The International Coastal Cleanup (ICC) is on Saturday, September 21 — less than one month away! Can you think of ways you can help prevent ocean litter from entering our waterways this month and every month?

The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration will join forces with Ocean Conservancy for the annual ICC event, and you can help too. Be sure to sign-up to clean-up and help keep the sea free of debris!

Tell us what actions you will take this month to reduce and prevent trash from entering the marine environment. Tweet us at @NOAADebris. Need some help? Check out this infographic from our partner, Ocean Conservancy:
