2 minute beach clean

"People are enjoying being part of a community. We get messages saying how good it feels to clean a beach or who say they never would have thought to pick up litter."

Grant awarded - £250

'2 minute beach clean' is a not for profit that uses social media to inspire people across the globe to carry out 2 minute beach cleans.  The #2minutebeachclean campaign is funded by profits from sales/sponsorship of beach clean stations, from small grants and by profits from sales of merchandise. 

We funded 2 minute beach clean to develop a website showing pictures from Twitter and Instagram of marine litter collected as part of the 2 minute beach clean project. The website also provides a home for the project with information, safety advice and news.


The website went live in April 2014.  Over 1270 instagram posts have been displayed on the site along with countless tweets and messages and there have been posts from every continent, including Antarctica.  An article on the BBC website about the project was the most seen and shared article ever.

Sine the site went live, 2 minute beach clean have been contacted by Reef Europe to sponsor the campaign, they are working with KBT and Surfdome and are the Eco partners for the London Film Festival. More contacts are approaching them all the time!
