The 2 Minute Foundation
The 2 Minute Foundation is an environmental charity that was set up in 2009 by Martin Dorey and Tab Parry to encourage beach cleaning and reducing litter.
Helping Hand Environmental have been working with this innovative charity since 2015. Using Twitter and Instagram to try to inspire others, Martin came up with the idea of doing just 2 minutes of picking up litter at a time – but every time – and began using the hashtag #2minutebeachclean
Since then many thousands of hashtagged posts have appeared on Instagram and Twitter from every continent.
Their beach clean stations are A-Frame boards with an outer holder for our litter pickers and an integrated holder for repurposed tent bags. Users take a 2 Minute branded litter picker and a reusable bag, fill it up with litter for 2 minutes or more and dispose of the litter in nearby bins or recycling points – recording their litter collected on The 2 Minute App (‘beachclean’), that helps count the litter to stop polluters and influence change. You can also find locations of all the boards and their guardians too on their online map.
