International Coastal Cleanup

Each year, on the third Saturday of September, people from all around the world come together at their local beaches and coastlines to take part in what is called the International Coastal Cleanup (ICC). ICC Day began over 30 years ago and was founded by Linda Maraniss and Kathy O’hara, both of whom were concerned about the amount of debris that polluted our oceans. Marine debris is not only a threat to wildlife and their habitats, it is also a threat to human health and our economy. That is why it is important to tackle this issue and be part of the recovery of our ocean resources.

The two main goals of the International Coastal Cleanup Day is to simultaneously clean our coasts and collect data regarding the types of trash found during the cleanup. This element of data collection is what makes the ICC unique. The data collected during the ICC gets inputted into the Global Trash Database and helps combat the issue of marine debris.
