As National Coordinators for Ocean Conservancy, we're asking you to be part of the WORLD’S largest movement for litter free seas!
Register an event during Big Beach Clean Weekend and we'll send you a free clean up kit including data cards to record the types of litter found. The data is shared with Ocean Conservancy which contributes to a worldwide report. The International Coastal Cleanup has brought together 13 million people from 150 countries to be part of the world’s largest volunteer effort to protect the ocean. Volunteers have collected 250 million pounds of litter along our coastlines and waterways!
You can also log the types of litter you collect by downloading the Clean Swell app before the event. Make sure to label your event ‘LHLH’ so we can track it as part of Northern Ireland's efforts! www.oceanconservancy.org/cleanswell
You can do this by creating a profile here. Once you have created a profile, click login at the top of the page, enter your details and click add new event. Don't forget to register your results after your clean up on our website.
If you have any stories and pictures we'd love to hear from you! Live Here Love Here would like to help celebrate your volunteering efforts as you undertake the critically important task to reduce plastic pollution in our rivers and seas, and remove rubbish from our streets. With permission from participants, please send us your photos and clean up stories, as we would like to showcase them on our communication channels.
Send them into Karina at firstname.lastname@example.org .
