2013 Coastal Cleanup Set for September 21, Saturday

For 27 years now, Ocean Conservancy’s International Coastal Cleanup (ICC) has been at the forefront for ocean’s health. Every year on the third Saturday in September, environmental activists of all ages descend to beaches, coasts and waterways to remove the trash and debris that impacts water quality, wildlife, people, tourism and economies. They record information on the debris collected on a standardized data card and the body of data collected over the years will provide us item-by-item, location-by-location accounting of what’s trashing our oceans so that we can develop smart solutions.

This year is another chapter in the fight against marine debris and ICC is one way for anyone, anywhere to make a difference. On September 21, 2013, Saturday from 7:00 am to 11:00 am, we would like to invite everyone to join the 28th International Coastal Cleanup Day. No registration fee. Just register/ signup at:
