To Stop Litter, We all Need to do our Part

Despite years of industry regulations, litter ordinances, and educational advancements, our area's waters continues to be threatened by a variety of pollutants. While no single government, business, or organization keep our waters clean, together, as we all do our part, we can create a clean water future.

200M Items in 30 years

Over the course of the 30-year history of the International Coastal Cleanup, volunteers have removed over 200 million items from beaches and waterways around the world. The top-ten list of items removed includes items like plastics bottles, plastic bottle caps, aluminum cans, cigarette butts, derelict fishing gear and a range of disposable plastic goods and food packaging. (Ocean Conservancy, 2016)

Over 5 Million Tons of Plastic

Of the 300 million tons of plastic waste created in 2010 in coastal countries, scientists believe 5.2 to 14 million tons of it enters the oceans then washes up on our beaches (Science, 2015).
