About International Coastal Cleanup Day

Over 30 years ago, coastal communities rallied together with the common goal to collect and document trash on their local beaches, giving birth to the Ocean Conservancy’s International Coastal Cleanup Day (ICCD). Since then, the cleanup has grown to an international scale, gathering volunteers from over 100 countries around the world to participate in a powerful and inspiring action to clean their local beaches and coasts.
