2012 International Coastal Cleanup Day

Ocean Conservancy’s annual International Coastal Cleanup last September marked 26 years of volunteers' commitment to make ocean and waterways cleaner, safer and more prosperous. Aside from removing trash and marine debris, volunteers collected data that will provide the only global snapshot of the debris problem. Marine debris found on shorelines and waterways vary from cigarette butts and plastic bags, to waste from industry and abandoned fishing gear. The ill-effects of these debris to people and environment drive all of us to work together to find solutions.

We invite you to join the International Coastal Cleanup and become part of a "Trash Free Seas Alliance". This will be a worldwide event on Saturday, September 15, 2012.

However, in order to address health and safety concerns of the volunteers from the aftermath of typhoons and floods in some areas in the Philippines, the cleanup is set on October 6, 2012 as advised by the ICC Philippine Coordinators and Ocean Conservancy.
