National 2 Minute Beach Clean Day2016

Today, 14th May, is National 2 Minute Beach Clean Day!

With the fine weather, An Taisce  is asking everyone going to the beach to spend just two minutes cleaning up as part of its Clean Coasts programme. Beachgoers can then take a photo of their clean-up and post it on social media under the hashtag ‪#‎2minutebeachclean‬.

“The #2minutebeachclean idea is simple and inspiring. You just pick up a few bits of litter when you go to the beach, take a picture of the litter and post on social media, then put it in the bin, it’s as simple as that,” – Sinead McCoy, manager of Clean Coasts.
