The Clean Coasts programme works with communities to help protect and care for Ireland’s waterways, coastline, seas, ocean and marine life. 

What do we do?

Clean Coasts are creating a tangible and immediate improvement on Ireland’s coastal environment through, 

  • Organising 100s of beach clean-ups each year

  • Mobilising thousands of volunteers, removing large quantities of marine litter from our coastline.

  • Promoting and facilitating coastal clean-ups and marine litter surveys.

Clean Coasts has grown over the years and now includes two main national clean-up drives – Coca-Cola Clean Coasts Week and the Big Beach Clean. Our volunteering has expanded to include Corporate Volunteering and the Ocean Hero Awards also.

Other aspects include:

  • Green Coast Award

  • Love Your Coast Photography competition

  • Clean Coasts Roadshows 

  • Ocean Talks

  • Corporate Volunteering

  • Ocean Hero Award

 

Clean Coasts also operate several campaigns in Ireland including Think Before You Flush and international campaigns #2minutebeachclean and Beat the Microbead.
