Big Beach Clean 2017-08-21T13:27:28+00:00


Clean Coasts Big Beach Clean weekend will take place on the 15th, 16th and 17th of September 2017. We are delighted to team up with the International Ocean Conservancy again for the International Coastal Cleanup event. In 2016, nearly 800,000 volunteers in over 90 countries removed 8,193 tonnes of marine litter from the world’s oceans.

We hope everyone will join the movement for litter free seas and be part of the world’s largest coastal cleanup event and marine litter survey. The event takes place every year on the 3rd weekend in September.

An important part of the Big Beach Clean is to gather data on the types of litter currently being found on the Irish coast.
