Volunteers throughout The Bahamas took part in the Ocean Conservancy’s “28th Annual International Coastal Cleanup (ICC)”, and sponsor Ports International is proud to assist with the cause providing garbage bags and gloves for the cleanup.
Every year in September, more than half-a-million people in 100 countries remove millions of pounds of trash from beaches and waterways all over the world. This year celebrates 27 years of volunteerism for a healthier ocean.
Over the last quarter-century, the International Coastal Cleanup has grown from a single cleanup on a Texas beach to a worldwide movement to end the threat of trash in our ocean. As such, it not only makes a powerful statement about global concern for the environment, it also empowers local communities to do something about pollution.
