Clean Coasts engages communities in the protection of Ireland’s beaches, seas and marine life. The programme is operated by the Environmental Education Unit of An Taisce and is currently funded by the Department of the Housing, Planning, Community & Local Government and Fáilte Ireland. Clean Coasts is made up of two main elements; Clean Coasts Volunteering and the Green Coast Award. They organize 100s of beach clean-ups each year, with thousands of volunteers, removing large quantities of marine litter from the coastline, and generally promote and facilitate clean-ups and marine litter surveys.
