Coastal Cleaning

Coastal cleanups help save wildlife, protect our oceans and raise awareness about ocean pollution.


Big Blue Ocean Cleanup's ambassador network runs coastal cleanups all over the world. We support thousands of ambassadors with the equipment needed to keep the places we love clean. Our Coastal Cleanup program provides a fun and easy way to volunteer and engage with our mission to protect our oceans and marine wildlife.

Volunteers of all ages, local community groups, visitors, clubs, local and corporate businesses around the world contribute to the success of our Coastal Cleaning Programme and are vital to keep our beaches and coastline clean. 

Every year hundreds of thousands of volunteers comb the beaches and coastlines around the world for rubbish. Coastal cleaning can be entirely rewarding, because you’re consciously helping to protect our natural environment as well as your local area, and they can be a great opportunity to meet new friends. If you are interested in taking part in one of our coastal cleanup events please check out our social channels.

Did you know? There is over 372,000 miles of coastline in the world and over 2.4 billion people, lives within 100 km (60 miles) of an oceanic coast.
