Join thousands of your friends and neighbors today, for the 2012 International Coastal Clean Up.
Local actions, global changes!
For more than a quarter of a century, volunteers with Ocean Conservancy’s International Coastal Cleanup have picked up everything imaginable along the world’s shorelines: cigarette butts, food wrappers, and even the proverbial kitchen sink.
These passionate ocean lovers not only pick up trash that endangers the health of humans, wildlife, and coastal economies, they count every item as well.
The resulting item-by-item, location-by-location Ocean Trash Index provides an invaluable snapshot of just what’s out there, and helps inform lasting solutions…

Nearly nine million volunteers from 152 countries and locations have cleaned 145 million pounds of trash from the shores of lakes, streams, rivers, and the ocean on just one day each year.
