Filipinos to celebrate 30th International Coastal Cleanup on September 19, 2015


The ever-increasing ocean trash – plastic waste in particular – has produced nothing less than a global crisis for ocean waters, marine wildlife and habitat, human health and safety, wasted resources and lost revenues for many nations. Fortunately, this is one environmental issue that can be addressed by tackling trash at the source before it has a chance to reach the water and by changing the behaviors that allow trash into the water in the first place.

International Coastal Cleanup (ICC) provides the opportunity to make a difference in a global movement by getting rid of trash/debris from our shorelines, rivers, lakes and waterways; raising environmental awareness; and providing information which will guide and influence governments, corporations and industries in developing smart solutions to the marine debris problem.

ICC is the largest volunteer-based initiative of the Ocean Conservancy, a non government organization based in Washington, D.C., USA. Last year, about 562,000 volunteers from 91 countries and locations have participated in the Cleanup. In the Philippines alone, there were 107,695 volunteers, removing 208, 438 kilos of trash in 335 kilometers of shorelines and waterways.

The 30th International Coastal Cleanup Day will be celebrated this coming September 19, 2015, Saturday.  Everyone is encourage to join this environmental event.

More than 107,000 Filipinos joined the 2014 International Coastal Cleanup


More than 107,000 Filipinos joined the 2014 International Coastal Cleanup (ICC) last September 20 & 27, 2014. Although total participation went down by 29% due to a weather disturbance, we are acknowledged as one of the top ten countries in the 2014 ICC. 

Cleanup volunteers poured in beaches, coasts, rivers, waterways and underwater seas from 29 provinces and 350 cleanup sites to participate in this symbolic event. Zambales was No. 1 among top ten provinces in terms of volunteer turnout, followed by Cebu, NCR, Batangas, Surigao del Sur, Pangasinan, Cavite, Negros Occidental, Quezon and Catanduanes. 

An estimated 14,828 bags of trash weighing 189,245.54 kilos were collected and 287.04 kilometers covered during beach/shoreline, waterway, underwater and watercraft cleanups. Of the total categorized debris items collected, about 67% belonged to the “Top Ten Debris” – a list of the most prevalent trash found in all the cleanups. Food wrappers (41%), cigarette butts (11%), other plastic bags (9%), plastic grocery bags (8%) and straws/stirrers (7%) are top debris on the list. They are also identified as the most prevalent debris for five consecutive years (2009-2013). Plastic take out/away container butts and plastic beverage bottles debris are new items in this year's "Top Ten". Good news, disposable diapers which rank third last year in the list went down to 14th rank.

Among the most unusual items found during the cleanups are 1 high heel shoe, 20 men’s underwear, 1 friendship ring, 1 motorcycle helmet, 12 pillows, 4 blankets and 2 baby cradles/hammocks.

Ocean Conservancy’s International Coastal Cleanup (ICC) is the largest global volunteer effort for a cleaner and healthier marine environment. ICC which is celebrated annually on the third Saturday of September, connects and engages people to remove and record trash/debris from beaches/shorelines, waterways and seas and make a difference - for trash free seas.

Join our cause this 19th of September 2015. Please visit our website for more details.

2014 International Coastal Cleanup to be held on September 20, 2014

2013 beach cleanup in Olongapo City, Zambales

"TURN THE TIDE ON TRASH!"

Trash has infiltrated all reaches of our ocean, causing innumerable impacts to people, water quality, marine wildlife and economies and also one of the sources contributing to climate change. However, there is good news - ocean trash can be prevented by tackling trash at the source before it has a chance to reach the water.

Ocean Conservancy’s International Coastal Cleanup (ICC) is a global volunteer-based initiative geared towards reducing the impacts of marine debris. Celebrated every year on the third Saturday of September, ICC mobilizes a multitude of volunteers from more than 90 countries and states to cleanup trash and debris from beaches/shorelines, rivers, lakes and waterways and to raise environmental awareness.

Last year, there were 182, 408 volunteers nationwide who joined the ICC. They collected 794,181 kilograms of trash over 446 kilometers of beaches, rivers, waterways and underwater areas.

What is unique about ICC? Volunteers don’t just cleanup but they are also tasked to record information on each trash collected on a standardized Ocean Trash Data Form. The Trash Index produced will provide us item-by-item, location-by-location accounting of what’s trashing our oceans. Likewise, information gathered will guide and influence governments, corporations and industries in developing smart solutions to the marine debris problem.

On September 20, 2014, Saturday from 7:00 AM to 11:00AM, everyone is invited to join the 29th International Coastal Cleanup. Please visit our website to register and details on how to organize a Cleanup, orientation slideshows and ICC materials to download. No registration fee.

On-line Data Submission 2013 ICC



During the 2013 International Coastal Cleanup (ICC) held last September 21, cleanup volunteers have seen all kinds of trash washed out to shores, from unique items like toothbrushes, slippers, umbrellas and handbags to the ubiquitous food wrappers and plastic bags. They recorded every item listed in a data card to help build comprehensive solutions for trash free seas. Although ICC is just a one day event, volunteers have made a meaningful difference in the health and vitality of our seas, rivers and lakes.

Cleanup volunteers may submit the results of the cleanup together with pictures and stories through the following:
