Will you join us this year? Come be a part of the change you wish to see in the world and help minimize the negative impact debris has on the ocean by removing it from our beaches. 

Thanks to volunteers around the world, the International Coastal Cleanup has become a beacon of hope, leading and inspiring action in support of our ocean. Over the years, this movement has created a family that spans oceans and country borders. A network that works together for something bigger than us. To our global network, we thank you.
