Washington CoastSavers International Coastal Cleanup
The International Coastal Cleanup (ICC) is a global cleanup effort organized by the Ocean Conservancy each September. Washington CoastSavers serve as local cleanup coordinators in Washington State. Trash found at ICC events will be counted and included in an annual index of global marine debris to be released in 2017. Last year, nearly 800,000 volunteers collected over 18 million pounds of trash from shorelines around the world. The data gathered at ICC events provides information that can inform policy solutions and identify target areas where preventative solutions will make the biggest difference. ICC events also raise awareness of the pervasive marine debris issue and bring together people and organizations who care about the health of our waterways.
