International Coastal Cleanup Philippines
The campaign aims to unite industry, science, and nonprofit leaders that share a common goal for a healthy ocean free of trash by understanding how materials enter our ocean and identifying cost-effective strategies to confront plastic pollution on a global scale.
The ever-increasing amount of trash, plastics in particular have produced nothing less than a global crisis to the health of our waters, marine wildlife, human health and safety and economies of many nations.
Fortunately, this is one environmental issue that can be addressed by tackling trash at the source before it has a chance to reach the water and by changing the behaviors that allow trash into the water in the first place.
The program helps us identify the type, amount and sources of debris that has accumulated in a particular site. The data collected will help inform/ influence policy-makers to create sound solutions to the marine debris problem.
Our foundation aims to support a change in policies, business practices, and consumer behavior towards a more sustainable community that can contribute effectively to the Sustainable Development Goals.
