HOW TO GET INVOLVED


Getting involved is easy, whoever and wherever you are. There are loads of ways you can help to clean up the planet 2 minutes at a time. From beach cleaning to shopping at your local waste-free shop, everything you do counts! And it all adds up to make a difference.

Do a #2minutebeachlcean, #2minutelitterpick or #2minutestreetclean. All you have to do it get out there and start beach cleaning or litter picking! Then, if you want to help to inspire others, take a picture of your haul and post it to social media using either the hashtags.

Fundraise for a station. Our beach cleaning and litterpicking stations make it easy to pick up litter. IF your neighbourhood doesn’t have one, why not fundraise for one. In 2021 we are introducing our marine litter stations, made from beach litter.

Become a Guardian Angel and look after your local beach clean or litter pick stations. Our Guardian Angels learn how to beach clean safely and help to keep our network of 900 stations in tip top shape. They also organise beach cleans and outreach when they can.

Join the Angel Academy. All our Guardian Angels are enrolled in our Academy where they learn how to take care of our beaches and get to join training from other agencies.

Come to Beach School. Our beach school runs from our base in Bude. So, if you are in the area, join us. It’s free!

Make changes. Our downloadable guides give you ideas for reducing your plastic footprint and taking care of the planet.
