The money from EOCA will be used to fund the on-going successful beach clean programme, whilst expanding into new areas such as in-ocean cleans. 2018 broke the record for the number of participants and collections organised and this year the target is for 1000 volunteers to organise at least 1600 clean up events, mobilising 60,000 people in 47 countries, educating 100,000 people. Data on the number and type of collected items from 1195km of beach, lakes, rivers and seabeds all over the world will fuel scientific research and underpin lobbying of the EU for stricter targets on the reduction of waste and pollution entering our oceans.

Every €10 donated via the EOCA website will help us fund an area of 50 metres square (50m x 50m) -the area of two olympic size swimming pools!- of clean ups delivered through the Ocean Initiatives project.
