INTERNATIONAL COASTAL CLEANUP - 09.17.16

In 2015, we removed over 16,000 lbs of trash from 59 miles of Rhode Island shoreline.

The International Coastal Cleanup is the world's largest volunteer effort for our ocean and waterways. People all over the world remove trash from the shores and document what they find. The data is compiled and published in an annual global report on marine debris by the Ocean Conservancy.

WHEN: Saturday, September 17, 2016
WHERE: Beaches in Rhode Island and all over the world!
WHO: YOU! Sign up for a cleanup at savebay.org/icc
WHY: 
Ocean trash is a serious pollution problem that affects the health of people, wildlife and local economies. Policymakers use the ICC data to raise awareness about marine debris and reduce the problem at the source.
