International Coastal Cleanup Day

If you’ve spent any time along the coast, chances are you’ve seen plastic bottles, bags, or other man-made debris on the sand or in the water.

Every year around eight million metric tonnes of plastic ends up in the world’s seas and oceans, adding to the 150 million metric tonnes already there. This mind-boggling amount of plastic has a massive impact on the marine environment. The figures are astounding, but we can do something about it.

On 15 September, International Coastal Cleanup Day is observed around the world and Jamaica is no exception.

On International Coastal Cleanup Day, cleanups are organised around the island bringing out businesses, individuals, and visitors to remove trash from the nation’s beaches. Over 170 sites have been registered with the Jamaica Environment Trust (JET).

JET will be hosting the flagship cleanup on the Palisadoes strip.

For more information on Jamaica’s International Coastal Cleanup Day activities, keep an eye on the JET’s website and Facebook page.
