Cleaner, greener beaches are important for tourism, coastal communities and wildlife such as sea turtles too.
We also wanted to raise awareness of the amount of plastic entering the earth's oceans.
This campaign took place in July 2015 and involved 68 tourism organisations organising 108 beach cleans in 20 countries.
Greener holidays aren't just about eco-trips or camping in the wilderness...they're about the simple things that everyone can do whilst away, whatever type of holiday you go on! This site has lots of handy tips and info on how to make your holiday greener.
We've teamed up with Water To Go to bring you an exclusive offer to help reduce plastic waste while you're away, and provide clean drinking water, wherever you are. Click here for the 20% off voucher >
