This year would have been the 33rd annual International Coast Cleanup. All event organizers have been asked to postpone their events.

In 2018 alone, nearly 800,000 volunteers in more than 100 countries collected nearly 20.5 million pounds (or 9.3 million kilograms) of trash, according to the Ocean Conservancy, which organizes the event. 2017 marked the first year in ICC history that all ten of the top-ten items collected by volunteers were made of plastic.

Launched in 1986 on a single beach in Texas, Ocean Conservancy’s International Coastal Cleanup has mobilized nearly 13 million volunteers and removed 250 million pounds (more than 113 million kilograms) of trash from beaches and waterway worldwide.
