2minutelitterpick

Great stuff from Dubai once again. @janealdersley did exactly what this IG feed has been "preaching" from the beginning: when you are going about your day it's very simple to help out our beloved planet by picking what others leave behind. I know it can be frustrating to face such lack of care from fellow humans but change starts with one soul at the time. Thank you so much Jane. ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿ˜Š #pickplasticnotshells #plasticsundays #justgrabbits #take3forthesea #2minutebeachclean #2minutelitterpick #marineplasticpollution #givemothernatureahand #makeapositiveimpact #alsufouhbeach #jumeirah #jumeirahbeach #kitebeach #nessnassbeach #nessnass #kitenbeach #surf #surfing #sea #nature #eco #ecofriendly #beach #dubai #uae

Never thought I'd be posting photos of my bin online ๐Ÿ˜‚ this is a #binupdate for those of you who are interested: our 'landfill' waste for the first 6 months of 2018. It's less than half full so looking good for not emptying until 2019, which is our aim! There's nothing smelly in there as we compost all of our food waste. A lot of what you can see (like the broken ball and some of the wrappers) is litter that's been collected whilst on dog walks. There are a load of helium balloons in there too ๐Ÿ˜ขand a few dog toys that have been destroyed - we won't be buying more as they don't last! We have excellent recycling in Wealden which helps โ˜บ #bin #wheeliebin #rubbish #trash #trashisfortossers #landfill #incineration #wealden #sussex #zerowaste #zerowastehome #zerowastelife #journeytozerowasteuk #litter #2minutelitterpick

All the colours this morning! I am developing a hatred from the corners of wrappers!! #2minutelitterpick #schoolrunlitterpick #olney #keepbritaintidy #plasticfree #plasticfreejuly

**Bitterne Manor beach clean** After seeing the mess Bitterne Manor was in yesterday we went back in the evening to do a litter pick. The council had been out off the back of Treen's call that morning and had emptied the bins. However there was still alot of litter strewn around the park ans shore line, so we go to work picking the litter that was laying about. We collected two bin bags of general waste and two bags worth of recycling. We found a net in the river, small plastic pouches which obviously had been used for drugs and waste from the adjacent boat yard. There is still more work to do which we will tackle at the group clean on the 29th. It was a great way to spend the evening and the kids had a great time. They became quite competitive over who could collect the most. #2minutelitterpick #2minutebeachclean #keepbritaintidy #bethechange #thelitterpickchicks #emergencylitterpick #litterpicking #lovewhereyoulive #2minbcphotochallenge4 challenge

Did my #2minutelitterpick on the #schoolrun this morning. Of the 150 odd bits of rubbish we picked up, 121 were #cigarettebutts and 2 cigarette boxes! Could have picked up hundreds more. #shameonyou #disgusting #uneducated @4oceancleanups @2minutebeachclean https://www.google.co.uk/amp/s/amp.theguardian.com/sustainable-business/2015/jun/09/why-cigarette-butts-threaten-to-stub-out-marine-life #claygate

I just realized that I never posted this trash picture from the other day. Iโ€™m pretty sure they are all bits that got blown out of over stuffed trash and recycling bins on trash day. A little reminder that not everything you put into the bin makes it to the landfill. #1pieceofrubbish #3forthesea #plogging #1piece #2minutelitterpick #2minutestreetclean #stoplittering #stopplasticpollution #makelitterpickingcool #planetorplastic #plasticpollutes #bottlecaps #trash #litter #saynotoplastic #savetheseaturtles

Roadside pickup driving at work. Another late one but Six #morebottlesforpickup1million - forgot this should have been a #lovewhereyoulive tag for #2minbcphotochallenge4 - you can't see much in this image but always a couple of tawny owls calling when I stop off. It's not the most attractive area, a layby with a broken down wall that is falling further frown the slope and lots of flytipped stuff in amongst the treated Japanese knotweed but I guess you don't need to see a spectacular view at every turn to enjoy it for what it is when you look through that initial image #staysafeandcoollitterpickers ๐Ÿ’š๐Ÿš˜๐Ÿšฎโ™ป๏ธ๐Ÿ˜ #5piecesaday #5pieces_a_day #5thingsclear #2minutelitterpick #2minutestreetclean #1dechetparjour #1pieceofrubbish #stuffthatshouldntbethere #singleuseplasticbottles #roadkillplasticbottles #pickup1million #deadbottlesimpersonatingsmallmammaltraps #deadcansimpersonatingsmallmammaltraps #takeawayrubbish #singleusecoffeecups #JustGrabBits #litterati #roadsidelitter #couldntcarelessnotcarelesssociety

Day 16 of #PlasticFreeJuly - my first official park cleanup! I filled this bag with rubbish I found while walking the beautiful pathways of Richmond Park today. I hope to do this more often, and make it as much a part of visiting a park or beach as packing a snack and a picnic blanket! This park is home to so much wildlife - I saw birds and squirrels and bunnies and deer today, not to mention the dogs that are regularly walked here. They deserve a plastic-free landscape, donโ€™t you think? x . . . #zerowaste #zerowastelondon #zerowastelifestyle #notoplastic #notoplastic #plasticfreeforthesea #RichmondPark #2minutelitterpick #rubbish #summer #summerafternoon #picnic #London #lovetheplanet #lowwaste #noplanetb

What an absolute privilege & joy it was to share a panel with @ellieworldwide & @stephenfabes at @lovetrailsfestival this weekend. ๐Ÿ™Œ Thank you so much to @jameswight & @adventureuncovered for inviting me to talk about Plogging (picking up litter & jogging), the awesome @2minutebeachclean family ๐Ÿ’š, @martindorey book ๐Ÿ“˜& my #365daysoflove #2minutelitterpick project for 2018. ๐Ÿ˜Šโ™ป๏ธ๐Ÿƒโ€โ™€๏ธ๐Ÿ„โ€โ™€๏ธ Whilst Stephen talked about his incredible 6 year cycling circumnavigation of the world, ๐Ÿšต๐Ÿผโ€โ™‚๏ธ my talk was at the other end of the scale. The impact we can all make with tiny changes in how we choose to limit/avoid single use plastic & picking up the litter we see so it doesnโ€™t enter the waterways & ultimately the ocean. ๐Ÿƒโ€โ™€๏ธโ™ป๏ธ๐Ÿณ๐Ÿฌ๐Ÿข The audience at the Campfire Stage were fab and made brilliant suggestions. ๐Ÿ™Œ And @ellieworldwide was simply incredible - so knowledgeable about environmental issues and determined to make a difference with her filmmaking & writing. ๐ŸŽฅ๐Ÿ–ฅ It was so touching later in the weekend when people came up to me and said theyโ€™d picked up some litter on the trails or would be starting their own #2minutebeachclean #2minutestreetclean at home. Together we can all make a difference. ๐Ÿ˜Šโ™ป๏ธ๐Ÿณ๐Ÿƒโ€โ™€๏ธ Thanks to everyone who made #lovetrails2018 so amazing! Jx ๐Ÿ˜Š๐Ÿƒโ€โ™€๏ธโ™ป๏ธ๐Ÿณ๐Ÿ• .

๐Ÿค”๐Ÿ˜”. . . . It was obviously too much to take it away to the hotel room or lobby. Good thing I did then... #2minutelitterpick #keepbritaintidy #dontbeatosser #scrapbagalice

Iโ€™ve had the worst bloody day, my faith in humanity is at an all time low and then some idiot decides to leave this by my car. Itโ€™s ok though #litterfuckwit, I took it home and put it in my bin. #plasticpollution #kfc #cleanitup #singleuseplasticsucks #2minutelitterpick #litterati #litterpick #putitinafuckingbin #wwlitterpickers #litterpickersww

We went back to Bitterne Manor for an evening litter pick. More on that later on....it's time to put the kids to bed! ๐Ÿคฆ๐Ÿผโ€โ™€๏ธ (it's still too hot and light for a decent bedtime ๐Ÿคฃ) Whilst out picking in the evening sun we have decided to rebrand...we are now called The Litter Pick Chicks. ๐Ÿฅ๐Ÿค #thelitterpickchicks #bitternemanor #2minutelitterpick #keepbritaintidy #britishsummertimeatitsbest

#lovewhereyoulive . #2minbcphotochallenge4 . . I love our beach. It's where we picnic & BBQ, where we walk and find treasure. The children swim in the sea. I clean ,it take away the rubbish spend hours picking broken glass from the shingle. We all need to show where we live some love. . #2minutebeachclean #plasticisforever #2minutelitterpick #savetheocean #refusesingleuse #dealkent #dealtown
