The International Coastal Cleanup is the largest global volunteer project in service to our rivers, lakes and oceans. Each fall, approximately 600,000 people worldwide clean up their local waterways and document every single piece of trash collected. The results are sent to the Ocean Conservancy and published into an annual report to give us an idea of exactly what is floating around in our oceans (hint: the most prevalent item is small, plastic, and brown and white in color).
