On September 21, the worlds largest volunteer ocean and waterway clean-up event led to millions of people worldwide making an effort for their local areas. The event which was organised by Ocean Conservancy was designed to highlight the need to look after local waterways and coastal areas and to encourage an ongoing effort.

The event known as International Coastal Cleanup encouraged people to join the effort by pledging to pick up trash on that day or make less during the month and to download their application to help them make sustainable changes. These might include reducing consumption of one-time use products to prevent them ending up in the ocean.
