What is the
International
Coastal Cleanup
Day ?

It is the world’s largest, annual, volunteer effort tackling this problem for our seas and waterways. The focus of the International Coastal Cleanup Day in Montenegro is waste reduction, in particular of single use plastics. Its enduring presence in the sea and rivers, and its irreversible negative impact on the marine and river ecosystems is killing hundreds of thousands of birds and marine animals, and has indirect negative impact on human health.

Why do we do
a Brand Audit?

Doing a brand audit that involves counting and documenting the brands found on plastic waste collected at a clean up helps identify the companies responsible for plastic pollution.

#What we will organize?

What to expect?

1. Giving instructions

You will receive instructions before the start of the cleanup on what should be collected, where to leave the trash bags, and which areas we will focus on for the cleanup.

2. Collection of litter

Each participant volunteer will be lent a pair of reusable garden gloves to collect litter abandoned on river shores and beaches during the event.

3. Separation of collected waste

On several beaches and river banks, the waste will be separated by type and brand. This will enable preparation of a Waste Audit Report that will be shared with the municipalities, the government and companies/brands.

4. Waste measurement

On each location, the quantity of waste collected will be measured. That will help us quantify litter on those locations.

Security

First aid kit

We will have a First-aid kit for minor cuts and scrapes.

Soaps

Soaps will be available to clean your hands after the cleanup.

COVID-19 Safety Measures

Our priority is the health and safety of all participants. We ask everyone who participates to take into account the observance of epidemiological measures in force in our country as well as the measures referred to them by the local coordinator or coordinator of the action:

  • At all actions, the maximum allowed number of people will be 40, with the obligation to respect the physical distance of at least two meters.
  • People in the high-risk group * as well as those who are ill or who have recently visited the risk area * are asked to stay at home.
  • All participants must wear masks and gloves as well as bring their own water / refreshments. Food and water will NOT be provided at this year’s actions to prevent the spread of the virus.
  • All participants must wear masks and gloves as well as bring their own water / refreshments. Food and water will NOT be provided at this year’s actions to prevent the spread of the virus.
  • All participants are strongly advised to wash their hands with soap and water or hand sanitizer after the event.

* Who are the people in the high risk group?

Any person who:

  • is over 60 years old

  • has a weakened immune system

* What are high risk areas?

Information about these areas is constantly subject to change.
