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.

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