Clean Coasts engages communities in the protection of Ireland’s beaches, seas and marine life.
What do we do?
Promote and facilitate coastal clean-up initiatives and marine litter surveys which result in a tangible and immediate improvement in Ireland’s coastal environment.
Clean Coasts organises hundreds of beach clean-ups annually mobilising thousands of volunteers, removing considerable quantities of marine litter from Ireland’s beaches and waterways.
Clean Coasts has developed a suite of community engagement initiatives that has led to the expansion of the Clean Coasts programme, including; Clean Waves, Clean Coasts Week, the Big Beach Clean weekend, Love Your Coast Photography Competition, Clean Coasts Ocean Hero Awards, Clean Coasts Road Show, #2MinuteStreetClean, the Clean Coasts Corporate Volunteering Programme and the Clean Coasts Ambassador Programme. Clean Coasts has also joined international campaigns such as Beat the Microbead and #2MinuteBeachClean.
