2 minute beach clean

Martin Dorey founded the 2 minute beach clean in 2009. It is an initiative to inspire everyone that uses the beach to spend 2 minutes protecting it.

Come to Sandbanks beach and do a 2 minute beach clean. You can find litter pickers and bags outside the beach office, Monday to Friday.

Whether you help during your daily dog walk, or make a special trip with the children, we would love to see your photos. Share them on our Poole beaches Facebook page and on the Litter Free Coast and Sea page.

Use the hashtags #2minutebeachclean and #Dorset.
