It’s time for the 36th annual International Coastal Cleanup. Join the world's largest, one-day volunteer effort for our oceans and waterways, and show your commitment to reducing marine debris, along with millions of volunteers from across the globe.
Scientists estimate that more than 17 billion pounds of plastic enter our ocean every year threatening marine life from corals polyps to sharks, the health of people, and local economies. By the year 2050, there will be more plastic in the ocean than fish!
International Coastal Cleanup ( ICC) is the world's largest, one-day volunteer effort to clean up the marine environment and raise awareness for this issue.
VolunteerCleanup.org organizes Miami's regional ICC effort, with 45+ individual cleanup events across the county.
Worldwide, thousands of volunteers from over 100 countries will spend their morning collecting millions of pounds of litter and debris on inland roadsides, coastal areas, inland lakes, and rivers. Volunteers will assist in this effort to clean and protect the environment by eliminating debris that injures wildlife, contaminates our beaches and waterways, and threatens boater safety in Miami-Dade County.
