Taipei, July 4 (CNA) A monthly coastal cleanup campaign will take place during the latter half of 2013 to encourage the public to get involved in environmental protection efforts, the organizer said Thursday.

The Taiwan Environmental Information Association said the idea of the mission is to allow people to learn about what is happening to their surroundings so that proper environmental measures can be taken.

"Knowledge is the foundation of meaningful action," the non-government group said on its campaign web page.

During the cleanup at New Taipei's Jinshan beach, participants will be able to observe the debris on the beach.

The campaign could also help the authorities keep a closer eye on the make-up of the trash washed up on the beach and come up with solutions.

In a similar cleanup event held in June, 22 volunteers collected 160.5 kg of trash, according to the association.
