Two Minute Beach Clean
What is is?
The #2minutebeachclean project, created by Martin Dorey, encourages everyone to join the growing movement of people, reducing marine litter 2 minutes at a time. We are thrilled to be part of this inspiring initiative and we have installed 8 beach clean stations across Dorset, making it easier and more accessible for anyone to help keep beaches litter free.
How does it work?
The boards help to make beach cleaning more accessible to members of the public, whether you are local or a tourist visiting the coast for the day, everyone’s individual efforts are valued to help reduce litter and marine waste along our beautiful beaches.
The idea is simple. Next time you visit the beach, whether you are going for a swim or walking the dog, it’s easy to make time for a short beach clean. Using one of the #2minutebeachclean stations, you can borrow litter pickers, grab a bag and pick up a few bits of marine litter and put it in a bin at the beach or take home to recycle.
Then, when you are done, take a picture of your marine litter haul on your phone (or make something crafty with it) and post it to Twitter or Instagram using the #2minutebeachclean #dorset hashtags together. It’s something everyone can get involved in and, with just 2 minutes, it will protect our coast and sea for all to enjoy.
Where Are Our Boards?
Litter Free Coast and Sea Somerset have funded three #2minutebeachclean boards, installed in Burnham on Sea, Berrow and Clevedon. Take a look at the map to see your nearest #2minutebeachclean station & watch the video below to see how easy it is to get involved.
*Become a Guardian*
We are currently recruiting for a Guardian for a new board that we propose to install at Sand Bay. A guardian is someone who is responsible for ensuring the station is safely put out and taken in each day. If you are interested in becoming a guardian and would like to find out more then please get in touch with us.
