New Year, New you – Tackle Climate change with a #2minutebeachclean
It’s not too late to pick a New Year’s resolution: Clean Coasts are asking people in Ireland to request a kit and do their bit for our marine environment
Clean Coasts is calling all the people in Ireland whose New Year’s resolution for 2022 is to be greener and help tackle climate change to choose a resolution they can commit to by pledging to do a #2minutebeachclean.
Last week, Clean Coasts released a video produced by Clean Coasts and Cube Media, starring Bryan Quinn who plays Dave, a person trying to go into 2022 being better and greener by being more conscious of the environment.
The campaign’s aim is to let people know that they don’t need to commit to a huge New Year’s resolution that they may not be able to sustain until the end of the year to make a difference. A #2minutebeachclean is an easy pledge to make that is flexible, doable and can be built on as your green year moves forward.
In only a week, 100 #2minutebeachclean kits were requested and over 200 people in Ireland already engaged in the campaign. To take part in the #2minutebeachclean, simply take two minutes to pick up some litter you see, share a picture of it on social media, tag Clean Coasts, use the hashtag #2minutebeachclean and dispose of the litter properly.
Sinead McCoy, Coastal Communities Manager said; “The #2minutebeachclean is such a great initiative to get involved in. Every day, so many people around Ireland share their #2minutebeachclean on social media, and that helps show how easy it is to get involved and make a difference. By taking part, not only do you make an immediate positive impact for the marine environment and wildlife, but it’s also a chance to spend time outdoors by the sea, exercise and even practice mindfulness.”
