Clean Ocean Action





KNOCK KNOCK…who’s there? Not Clean Ocean Action! (COA)

COA does not go door-to-door. We do not solicit funds or signatures, or distribute information through canvassing. If you have questions or concerns, COA suggests contacting your town administrator. Please further note that Clean Ocean Action has no financial affiliation with the organization called Clean Water Action (formerly known as NJ Environmental Federation) or any other canvasing organization.


Waves of Thanks, Volunteers!

The 33rd Annual Beach Sweeps held on Saturday April 21st was a huge success with over 5,000 volunteers at 70 locations statewide! 

The data from COA's 2018 Spring Beach Sweeps held on April 21, 2018 will be combined with data from the coming Fall Beach Sweeps on October, 20, 2018 and released in the 2018 Beach Sweeps Annual Report. The data collected provides a legacy of information that can be used to identify sources of pollution, monitor trends and discover solutions. Below is a link to COA's 2017 Beach Sweeps Annual Report, released on April 12, 2018
