Clean Coasts Week 2018 2018-05-25T12:08:46+00:00

Coca-Cola Clean Coasts Week is taking place from 1st to 10th June 2018 all over Ireland. Join us by registering your beach clean below and you will also receive a free Beach Clean pack.

We have all seen the evidence of marine litter along our coastline so for all you beach lovers out there it is an opportunity to do something positive to combat the problem and also raise awareness about the issue. People can create their own beach clean event or participate in one. Remember, every piece of litter removed from the coast is a piece of litter that won’t pollute our oceans or harm our wildlife. Don’t forget, you can also join us in celebration by attending some of our free coastal celebration events that will be taking place during the week.

Register for 2018
