Clean Coasts Week 2017-04-25T11:47:15+00:00

Coca-Cola Clean Coasts Week 2016 was a celebration of Ireland’s spectacular coastline. The week ran from May 6th – 15th and there were many ways for people to get involved.

We have all seen the evidence of marine litter along our coastline so for all you beach lovers out there it was an opportunity to do something positive to combat the problem and also raise awareness about the issue. People created their own beach clean event or participate in one. Every piece of litter removed from the coast was a piece of litter that won’t pollute our oceans or harm wildlife. People joined us in celebration by attending some of the free coastal celebration events that took place around the country as well.
