JET International Coastal Clean-up Day 2017

International Coastal Clean-Up (ICC) Day takes place on the third Saturday in September every year. For decades, the Ocean Conservancy has been coordinating ICC activities across the globe to collect millions of pounds of trash from coast and waterways in an effort to clean up the ocean coastlines and to create global environmental awareness of the adverse impact of poor solid waste disposal practices on our health, marine life and the overall environment. This volunteering activity funded by Tourism Enhancement Fund (TEF), and coordinated locally by the Jamaica Environment Trust (JET), has been dubbed the ‘world’s biggest one day volunteer event worldwide’.   

International Coastal Clean-up has become an annual event for the Environmental Health Foundation (EHF), as it aligns with our mandate of protecting the environment and creating environmental awareness. This year’s event, hosted on September 16, 2017, saw over 10,000 volunteers locally, with EHF being an active participant; contributing significantly to the cause.
