The International Coastal Cleanup (ICC) intends to utilize the power of people to fight ocean trash at Jupiter Beaches and other worldwide beaches and waterways. Marine debris is one of the greatest threats our ocean faces, but luckily it is an issue with which we can all play a part in the resolution. 

For every mile of ocean, there are at least 46,000 pieces of plastic debris floating within said distance. Furthermore, plastic does not decompose over a long period and only disintegrates, minute plastic particles are already showing up in our food and water. If these trends continue, it won’t be long before we face disastrous outcomes for our environment.

Since its beginning, more than 17 million volunteers have collected more than 348 million pounds of trash. In partnership with volunteer organizations and individuals around the globe, the International Coastal Cleanup engages people to remove debris from the world’s beaches and waterways. Thanks to volunteers worldwide there is hope, leading and inspiring action in support of our ocean.

For more than 35 years, the ICC has excited communities worldwide to collect trash that pollutes the waterways, making the coasts cleaner and the ocean healthier. Join others starting Saturday, September 17, 2022, for this year’s cleanup. Find out more here.
