Clean Coasts Week 2018 2018-06-11T10:26:41+00:00

Coca-Cola Clean Coasts Week is took place from 1st to 10th June 2018 all over Ireland. 

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 our wildlife. People also joined us in celebration by attending some of our free coastal celebration events that took place during the week.
