#2minutebeachclean is an incredible movement run by The Beach Clean Network Limited who are an non-profit charity based here in the UK. They are standing up and taking action against marine litter and plastic pollution on beaches all across the globe.

Martin Dorey founded the charity back in 2009, but the social media phenomenon that is #2minutebeachclean began in the winter of 2013/14.  Since then it has exploded with support from beach and sea goers, wild life lovers and the general public all looking to make a difference in just 2 minutes of cleaning when they’re at the beach.

This wonderful charity is funded by sponsorships from beach clean stations and sales of merchandise. This is where we step in!

If you watch #2minutebeachclean’s video (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YNGhAERqxLA) you will see that a staggering 38 Million plastic water bottles are thrown away in the UK each day. This is a simply mind blowing number of plastics that will take years and years to disappear, some may never even disappear. The negative impact this will have will be irreversible.
