Established in March 2011, the Sustainable Coastlines Charitable Trust is a multi award-winning New Zealand charity that exists to reduce litter together. Our goal is for 60% less coastal litter by 2030.
We inspire change in mindsets, behaviours, policies and practices, through community engagement and citizen science.
With the scale of our vision, we cannot achieve this work alone. We deliver and support large-scale clean-up events, educational programmes, public awareness campaigns and citizen science environmental monitoring activities. We also enable others by supporting ‘Do It Yourself ’ efforts nationwide.
Sustainable Coastlines is strictly apolitical and focuses on solutions for people of all ages, backgrounds and sectors.
