Every third Saturday of September every year is declared as the International Coastal Clean-up (ICC) Day and Bohol has been one of the consistent active participants in this world’s largest one day gathering of volunteers who will clean-up the environment in the designated areas.

This year’s 28th International Coastal Clean-Up will be simultaneously done on September 21, to start at exactly 6 a.m. when Boholanos from all walks of life head to beaches, waterways and underwater areas to help collect floating and submerged trash/debris that threatens our marine resources and human health.

According to the Bohol Environment Management Office (BEMO), government offices are given their respective areas of assignment and they were provided with ICC data card fill in information on the debris collected.

Participants are required to bring empty sacks, brooms, tongs and utility gloves for picking up wastes.

Wastes and debris are one of the serious and worsening problems today that threaten the lives of many people especially in highly urbanized areas, says BEMO.
Every year, billions of tons of wastes make their way to the sea posing greater threat and dangers to the marine resources and human health.

BEMO added this yearly coastal clean-up is pursuant to Presidential Proclamation No. 470, series of 2003 and reinforced by Executive Order No. 14, series of 2004 of the Bohol Provincial Governor, mandating the province participation in the yearly International Coastal Clean-up.

Bohol governor Edgar Chatto enjoined various government offices, institutions, organizations and all the people of Bohol to actively be involved and participate through cleaning and removing the wastes not only in their respective coastal areas but including rivers, lakes, streams, canals, drainages and other waterways.
