2 minutes that is all the time you need to spare!
Whenever you head down to the beach whether it be; winter/summer, rain/sun, 5 minutes for an ice-cream or a full day a splashing around, do a 2 minute beach clean.
Essentially it involves pickup up any piece of rubbish that litters a beach area for (you guessed it, 120seconds). By doing this you are helping massively to help remove dangers for wildlife in the marine environment.
Plastics don’t biodegrade; they simply get broken down into tiny particles (which is a bad thing).
Larger pieces of litter, such as nets and rope can trap: birds, seals, whales, dolphins and porpoises. While smaller pieces may not entangle wildlife, instead it gets mistaken for food.
Why your 2 minute beach clean makes a difference
We hope you can help on a mission to clean up the World’s oceans starting at the beach! For more information on how, where and news check out #2minutebeachclean all over social media.
