COA publishes 10 years of environmental impact

Clean Ocean Access’ 2016 Clean Report has been published! Our Clean Report highlights results from our Clean Program from 2006-2016, through efforts of our community volunteers dedicated to eliminating marine debris to improve ocean health.

With participation of over 7,600 volunteers, COA has hosted 457 cleanup events and removed an astounding 94,487 pounds of debris from the shorelines of Aquidneck Island!

Clean Ocean Access (COA) started to address the problem of marine debris in 2006 with small, friends and family cleanups, to monthly community gatherings removing a wide variety of debris from the coastline.  COA efforts now include a multitude of programs related to marine debris removal, prevention, education, and outreach.

These accomplishments have made a positive contribution to beautifying the coastline and improving local habitat, however, the biggest accomplishment is the abundance of friendships, positive energy within the entire community, and fostering of environmentally responsible behaviors.

We are proud to share with you how COA is improving ocean health and building community one cleanup at a time.
