What is the
International
Coastal Cleanup
Day ?

It is the world’s largest, annual, volunteer effort tackling the problem of waste for our seas and waterways. The focus of the International Coastal Cleanup Day in Montenegro is waste reduction,
in particular of single use plastics.

As you may already know, plastics are highly detrimental to human health, wildlife, and the natural environment.
As a fossil fuel product, plastic is pollution from the moment the oil
or gas is extracted, and it continues to cause pollution throughout
its lifecycle.

Plastic exacerbates climate change, emits greenhouse gas emissions.
It has even found its way to our bodies: We ingest at least 74,000 microplastic particles a year from the air we breathe, the water
we drink, and the food we eat.  

We can’t recycle our way out of the plastic pollution crisis: Only 9%
of all plastic ever discarded since 1950 has actually been recycled.

Our individual choices matter. By choosing to reuse, we’re saving millions of pieces of plastic and sending a message to the rest of the world that the solutions to plastic pollution and the climate crisis are there – and together we can keep our environment, oceans, and communities plastic-free for the future.

Why do we do
a Brand Audit?

Break free from Plastic’s Brand audit is a citizen science initiative that involves counting and documenting the brands found on plastic waste collected at a clean-up to help identify the companies responsible for plastic pollution. 

To truly solve the plastic problem, we are calling on the world’s and national top polluting companies to stop producingso much unnecessary single-use plasticin the first place.

To find out who the top polluting companies are, we need your
help to record data on plastic waste in your community.

#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 all locations, 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:

  • 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. 
  • All participants must wear masks and gloves as well as bring their own water / refreshments. 
  • 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
  • suffers from a chronic illness
  • has a weakened immune system

* What are high risk areas?

Information about these areas is constantly subject to change. For the latest information on infected areas, visit the website of the World Health Organization, and regarding the countries from which entry and stay in Montenegro is possible, follow the latest announcements of the Institute of Public Health.
