Clean Coasts Week is a celebration of our beautiful coastline and brings together beach lovers from all over to do something positive and combat marine litter. The week long events kicked off last Friday with marram grass planting and coastal clean ups around the country. The event will run on til the 15th of May, so there’s plenty more to get involved with.

Clean Coast are operated by An Taisce and do some fantastic work engaging in the protection of Ireland’s beaches, seas and marine life. They arrange coastal clean ups, marine litter surveys and actively get out there to promote awareness through their road shows. They also promote a number of initiatives like 2 Minutes Beach Clean, Beat the Bead and Think Before you Flush. These initiatives are easy things we can all do to help keep our beaches litter free and our oceans clean.
