More about Sustainable Coastlines:

Sustainable Coastlines is a young New Zealand charity run by four hard-working full time staff and a network of passionate volunteers. We love our coasts and we work with our sleeves rolled up to keep them beautiful. We coordinate and support largescale coastal clean-up events, educational programs, public awareness campaigns, riparian planting activities and other projects aimed at protecting and sustaining our coastlines. Through these projects we motivate volunteers and communities around Aotearoa / New Zealand and the Pacific to look after the coastlines we all love.

Since 2008, we have motivated 22,097 people to remove 835,516 litres of rubbish (over 117+ tonnes) from the coast and delivered educational presentations to over 50,000 school students with exceptional results.
