International Coastal Cleanup

The International Coastal Cleanup Program is an easy, enjoyable way for everyone to get involved and have a hand in keeping our shorelines clean and wildlife healthy. The International Coastal Cleanup is organized yearly by The Ocean Conservancy, and in 2016 it involved more than 500,000 people in 112 countries. In 2016, the Cleanup pulled over 18 million pounds of debris out of the water and off the shores. The Ocean Conservancy uses information about that trash to develop new programs that will help keep our environment cleaner in the future.

Here's where you can help — in two ways. First, groups and teachers with their students can take part in the International Coastal Cleanup and take trash out of the environment. It's a one-day event that gets kids involved in doing.

Second, kids and teachers can help every day by participating in the Ring Leader Program. The Ring Leader Program gets kids involved by learning — learning that litter is a people problem, whether it's in the water, or in the park, or on the beach, or on the side of the road. It gets kids involved by making a difference— by collecting plastic six-pack rings and bringing them to school for recycling, so they stay out of the waste stream.

Ring carriers represent about 0.2% of the total ocean debris collected in 2016. Remember, every day is a good day to make the earth a better place to live.
