Clean Coast is a Savannah based, 501(c)3 non-profit volunteer organization which works to combat marine debris by holding monthly beach and marsh cleanups on the Georgia Coast, one of the last extensive undeveloped shorelines in the United States. Although remote and beautiful, our coastline has not escaped the pervasive problem of marine debris and is well sprinkled with trash which is a nuisance and an eyesore for us humans and oftentimes deadly to wildlife. See full mission statement.

Bottled Water’s Enormous Footprint
Beverage containers are by far the most numerous item we find on our cleanups, and a very large portion consists of plastic water bottles. But the environmental foot print of bottled water goes far beyond its predominant presence in the litter washing onto our shorelines. This infographic created by Wheels for Wishes spells it out pretty clearly.
