World Ocean Day is celebrated annually on 8 June and, with only one month to go, Clean Coasts are asking volunteers to sign up to request a free clean-up kit and take action on the day.

The charity is asking everybody around Ireland to join their birthday celebrations and make a difference for our marine environment and wildlife.

In June 2023, Clean Coasts will be celebrating its 20th anniversary. Since 2003, Clean Coasts has been working with communities to help protect and care for Ireland's waterways, coastline, seas, ocean and marine life.

For 2023, the focus of World Ocean Day will be on the 30x30 campaign meaning that for us to create a healthy ocean with abundant wildlife and to stabilize our climate, it’s crucial that 30% of our planet’s lands, waters, and ocean are protected by the year 2030.

Marine litter has become a global problem for humans and marine life alike. For the past 20 years, Clean Coasts has been working with communities to tackle this issue. Making sure litter is collected and disposed of properly at the source is vital for a cleaner ocean and a greener world for all of us to enjoy.
