A warm hello from The Body Shop Malaysia!

Every year, Ocean Conservancy, a non-profit environmental advocacy group, organizes a global initiative called International Coastal Cleanup 2015 to clean up coastlines.

Over half a million volunteers from across 91 countries took part in last year's International Coastal Cleanup, cleaning up over 20,000 kilometres of coast and picking up over 7 million kilograms of trash.

This year’s Cleanup will be on September 19 2015. The Body Shop Malaysia is proud to be the organisers of the Malaysian initiative of this project for the 21st year running. Our role is to gather as many Malaysian volunteers as possible, and help liaise between you and Ocean Conservancy.

In order to take part, simply choose a beach and clean it up on September 19! This is a cleanup with a difference: As you clean the beaches, you will log every single piece of trash you pick up. This valuable data will be analysed by Ocean Conservancy.

Once you're done with your clean up, we'll collect the data you've gathered and mail it to Ocean Conservancy. It'll tell us what's polluting our oceans, and how it's harming our marine life. So while you will help keep our beaches and oceans clean, your efforts will also contribute to further understanding how to protect our beaches and oceans. The importance and value of this contribution cannot be understated. Data from previous years have been published in prestigious journals such as Science, and these insights have directly contributed to the identification and banning of harmful trash such as plastic drink rings.

To recap, this is all you need to do to take part:

 

1. NOMINATE A BEACH TO CLEAN.
