Clean Blue Promise

Will you make the Clean Blue Promise?

Coastal communities around the world are taking the Clean Blue Promise to protect their waters from plastic pollution. If you make the pledge, we will support you with guidance and tools to find and connect with the right team, engage your community, attract funding and press coverage, and measure your positive impact over time.

In a Clean Blue community:
Your beaches and waters are free of plastic litter (or litter of any kind, including cigarette butts)
Everyone uses plastic-free alternatives in their day-to-day lives - such as reusable coffee cups instead of plastic ones
Bars, cafes and restaurants provide free water in plastic-free containers - there is no plastic bottle waste
Young people are known as Sea Champions, and support their schools and families to reduce their plastic waste in everyday life
Visitors are immediately aware that this community is different, and are supported to use less plastic while they're visiting
Your region is famous for respecting the environment, and people choose to visit because of stories in the press and online about the progress you've made.
