Clean Coast Outer Hebrides

Clean Coast Outer Hebrides (CCOH) was set up in 2018 by a group of people concerned about the growing issue of plastic waste, and it’s effect on the coasts of the Outer Hebrides. CCOH are actively supporting, organising, leading, and participating in beach cleaning around the Outer Hebrides.

In 2019, CCOH started working towards achieving Surfers Against Sewage Plastic Free Community Status. They also work closely with the Scottish Islands Federation and Highland Environment Forum. CCOH is working closely with Surfers Against Sewage and Parley to turn the Outer Hebrides into a Plastic-Free Community.

Longer term goals are to involve the community and raise awareness of a range of marine issues, especially to educate and involve younger members of the community.
