Meet The Team
Clean Coasts Ambassador – Easkey Britton
Easkey is our Clean Coasts Ambassador and in this role has given generously her time and support to Coca-Cola Clean Coasts Week and the Clean Coasts programme.
“Being someone who has had so many wonderful and life-changing experiences at sea, who was given this gift from the ocean that has shaped my life and all that is in it, I have a responsibility to make sure I look after it – my playground, my work place and the ecosystem that supports my very being. If you think about it, all life has been shaped by the ocean and as an island nation in particular, we all have a responsibility to do something to protect and care for our coasts. And that’s what Clean Coasts is about – reminding us the importance and value of what we have and to look after it so everyone can enjoy it.”

As part of its commitments under the EU’s Marine Strategy Framework Directive and OSPAR’s Marine Litter Action Plan, the Department of Housing, Planning and Local Government is proud to support An Taisce’s ‘Clean Coasts Programme’, in its enthusiastic engagement with marine communities in relation to marine litter and in heightening public awareness and influencing positive behaviour among civil society. The Department would also like to acknowledge the tremendous work done by hundreds of local clean coast groups around the coast in protecting the marine environment, for the generations to come.
Fáilte Ireland, the National Tourism Development Authority is a proud sponsor of the Clean Coasts programme for the past 9 years. The Green Coast Awards and associated Clean Coasts groups act as custodians for the beaches, seas, and marine life in Ireland, ensuring that they are managed appropriately and that they are litter and pollution free for our visitors to enjoy.
