‘Take two hands and 30 minutes to clean up yOUR world – anytime, anywhere’.
We all love to enjoy our coastlines but how often do we feel a little bit of the magic is taken away by unsightly plastic waste?
As well as blighting our beaches it’s affecting our marine life and ecosystems in ways that will be impossible to reverse.
Two hands embodies the spirit of the huge national/international clean up days but asks what can you do with your two hands in 30 minutes, at a location near you, on any day of the year.
Putting it simply; what you can do to care for the place(s) that are near to you or important to you, anytime that you want.
We can all take action now ‘ANYTIME ANYWHERE’ to reduce plastic and make our beaches sparkle for the right reasons.
- Take 30 minutes to collect plastic waste at a beach where you are and please send a photo to us.
- Take part in one of our organised beach clean ups.
- Organise your own beach clean up with friends, at school or within your business.
- Refuse plastic; use less single us plastic in your home and workplace.
…If each of us takes just 30 minutes to clean up our beaches, added together that’s a lot of time and plenty of plastic that won’t be entering the sea….!
Share your success
We want to hear the results of your Dos Manos activities and see what plastic pollution you have removed from our beaches, so make sure you like our Facebook Page, Dos Manos. You can also share your ideas and stories on refusing plastic and how to end plastic pollution.

The Two Hands Project was set up in Australia in 2010 by a non-profit organisation that tackles plastic pollution across the world. www.twohandsproject.org Asociación Ondine is delighted to be working in collaboration with them to launch the initiative in Mallorca.
The Mediterranean is one of the World’s marine biodiversity hotspots, with just 0.8% of the total ocean surface but harbouring almost 10% of the world’s marine biodiversity, which is particularly affected by solid waste pollution, comprising approximately 75% of plastic.
