An Taisce, through its Clean Coasts program, is encouraging the people of Galway to pledge to clean up their area for just 2 minutes to protect the Irish coast and waterways.
They are asking everyone to choose a New Years resolution they can stick to by doing a 2 minute beach clean up near their homes and the campaign’s goal is to let people know that they are not. don’t need to commit to a huge New Year’s resolution that they might not be able to hold until the end of the year to make a difference.
A # 2minuten beach cleaning is a commitment that is easy to make, flexible, and doable, and one that you can build on as your Green Year progresses.
In 2021 2,000 people have pledged to do a # 2minutebeachclean and for 2022 Clean Coasts is calling on people across Ireland to visit their website and pledged to make a # 2minutebeachclean to receive a beach cleaning kit reusable individual containing a tote bag and gloves.
Coastal Communities Director Sinead McCoy spoke to John Mulligan and told him that the 2 Minute Beach Cleanup is something anyone can get involved in:
In a brand new video produced by Clean Coasts with Cube Media, Clean Coasts urges people to have a green new year and choose a resolution they can commit to by committing to do a # 2minutebeachclean.
The video shows Dave (played by Bryan Quinn) trying to enter 2022 being better and greener by being more environmentally conscious. However, after several unsuccessful attempts, he begins to lose hope until he finds himself on a beach in front of a # 2minutebeachclean board and exclaims; âA clean 2 minute beach. So simple and keeps me green. New Year’s resolution in the bag!
