We Celebrated Ireland’s spectacular coastline by getting Ireland involved in Coca-Cola Clean Coasts Week 2019. The week ran from June 1st – 9th and there were many ways for people to get involved.

The Week aimed to encourage the nation to protect and enjoy our coastline, while celebrating the thousands of volunteers across the island of Ireland who tirelessly work to keep our beaches clean all year around. It was a great opportunity to “Do good, feel good”!

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 could 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 wildlife. People could join us in celebration by attending some of the free coastal celebration events that took place around the country as well.
