Let's get a 2 Minute Beach Clean board in Hythe!

I am lucky enough to live 3 minutes from the sea, and walk my dog every morning along Hythe beach. I love water, and and spending time on my paddle board just cruising, or teaching SUPYoga connects me to our blue planet even more.  My daily walks and paddles have bought me closer to the problem we have with plastic pollution but I do have faith in our community to change this - I do believe small acts can amount to big changes!

This is why I want to support the work of 2 Minute Beach Foundation and their #2MinuteBeachClean campaign by raising money for a beach clean board at my local beach in Hythe. 

The #2MinuteBeachClean doesn’t ask you to clean the whole beach, it doesn’t make you feel guilty for not being able to make every organised beach clean or for that matter solve the entire crisis. It simply says “do what you can’ 2 minutes on every trip to the beach or in fact anywhere, just pick up a few pieces.  The boards are there to inspire and guide people to do their bit. Providing litter picking equipment and a place to take a photo and share ’your bit’ with the world on social media so you can inspire others.

Their movement has grown enormously since its inception in 2014. Since then thousands of people all over the globe have used our hashtag for their beach cleaning activities. The charity have beach clean boards s all over the UK, so I was shocked to see we didn’t have any along our stretch of Kent in Hythe. We live in such a beautiful part of the world and as a community we want to keep it this way.

Therefore I am looking to raise £500 to secure a #2MinuteBeachClean board that will be looked after by Hythe Sailing Club. I will be raising the money and awareness through sponsorship of a Paddle Boarding boarding mission along the 28 mile long Military Canal between Rye and Hythe, picking up litter as I go and documenting it in a short video.  I am proud to be an ambassador for #ShePaddles, an initiative run by British Canoeing that inspires women to engage in paddle sports and thank them for their support during this fundraiser.

During the trip I will be recording the litter I collect via the Plastic Patrol app. This information helps the @plastic_patrol team gather crucial data to conduct the world’s largest survey of inland plastic pollution that can be used to approach brands that are causing the pollution from the source. 

Please help support my #litterpickpaddletrip and help raise funds for a beach clean board on Hythe beach. Details of 2 minute beach clean can be found below and on their website https://beachclean.net/
