The Clean Coasts programme works with communities to help protect and care for Ireland’s waterways, coastline, seas, ocean and marine life.
What do we do?
Clean Coasts are creating a tangible and immediate improvement on Ireland’s coastal environment through,
- Organising 100s of beach clean-ups each year
- Mobilising thousands of volunteers, removing large quantities of marine litter from our coastline.
- Promoting and facilitating coastal clean-ups and marine litter surveys.
Clean Coasts has grown over the years and now includes two main national clean-up drives – Coca-Cola Clean Coasts Week and the Big Beach Clean. Our volunteering has expanded to include Corporate Volunteering and the Ocean Hero Awards also.
Other aspects include:
- Green Coast Award
- Love Your Coast Photography competition
- Clean Coasts Roadshows
- Ocean Talks
- Corporate Volunteering
- Ocean Hero Award
Clean Coasts also operate several campaigns in Ireland including Think Before You Flush and international campaigns #2minutebeachclean and Beat the Microbead.
