Clean Coasts programme works with communities to help protect and care for of Irelandโ€™s waterways, coastline, seas, ocean and marine life. 

What do we do?

Clean Coasts are creating a tangible and immediate improvement on Ireland’s coastal environment through, 

  • Organises 100’s of beach clean-ups each year

  • Mobilising thousands of volunteers, removing large quantities of marine litter from our coastline.

  • Promoting and facilitating coastal clean-ups and marine litter surveys.

Clean Coasts has grown over the years and now includes two main national clean-up drives โ€“ Coca-Cola Clean Coasts Week and the Big Beach Clean. Our volunteering has expanded to include Corporate Volunteering and the Ocean Hero Awards also.

Other aspects include:

  • Green Coast Award

  • Love Your Coast Photography competition

  • Clean Coasts Roadshows 

  • Ocean Talks

  • Ocean Hero Awards

 

Clean Coasts also operate several campaigns in Ireland including Think Before You Flush and international campaigns #2minutebeachclean and Beat the Microbead.

This group of volunteers had a beach clean in Inishturk Island, in conjunction with An Taisce National Spring Clean! Not only they did an amazing job, but they also got to enjoy the spectacular landscape! ๐ŸŒŠ๐Ÿšฏ

We are so pleased with the work of one of our volunteers at Carrowniskey beach and later in Kilsallagh, Co. Mayo.

After a 90 minute #beachclean, 2 full bags were collected. Mostly net waste, ropes, and plastic bottles were found, however, our volunteer was so happy to see that there was way less litter than she expected! ๐ŸŽ‰๐Ÿ˜Š
