The Ocean Conservancy's International Coastal Cleanup Day

Every third Saturday of September the Ocean Conservancy stages the International Coastal Cleanup Day. This day is the world’s largest volunteer effort for ocean health. Over the last 25 years 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.

Oceans are crucial to the health and well being of the planet. We are all intimately connected to the ocean, it drives and moderates our climate. It is the ultimate source of much of the water we drink and much of the air we breathe. It directly feeds millions of people. It also absorbs a great deal of the air and water pollution generated by a world population approaching seven billion people.
