Description

Save the date: Washington, D.C.'s International Coastal Cleanup on Kingman Island on September 15th, 2018.


Scientists estimate that more than 17 billion pounds (8 million metric tons) of plastic enters our ocean every year. These plastics not only threaten marine life­, but can also impact us. We depend on the ocean for the air we breathe, the food we eat, and the water we drink. Making a difference for our ocean is easy. The International Coastal Cleanup has brought together 12 million people from 150 countries and counting to be part of the world’s largest volunteer effort to protect the ocean. Volunteers have collected 228 million pounds of trash along our coastlines and waterways! Last year, the Washington D.C. cleanup was a huge success, with over 500 volunteers collecting 4000 pounds along the shores of the Anacostia! Will you join us this year?
