International Ocean Cleanup

International Coastal Cleanup - Ocean Conservancy

Harnessing the Power of People to Fight Ocean Trash

The International Coastal Cleanup began more than 30 years ago, when communities rallied together with the common goal of collecting and documenting the trash littering their coastline. The movement was catalyzed by the passion and spirit of two committed individuals. Back in 1986, Linda Maraniss moved to Texas from Washington, DC, where she had been working for Ocean Conservancy.



A Beach Road cleanup drive has been planned for collection of plastic waste from Forest Building – GITAM College, Visakhapatnam, India . It is estimated an amount of 1.8 tons plastic waste and glass bottles would be 4 tons. We invite students and youths to volunteer with us.

Interested people are welcome to join us. Students / youths are requested to participate in the programme and share it with your friends.
