Cornwall-based charity 2 Minute Foundation, which is dedicated to clearing the planet of man-made debris two minutes at a time, has created a beach cleaning station built out of marine rubbish.

CEO Martin Dorey explained: “We have found a way to use beach waste as a resource, which means marine litter can be used for good instead of going to landfill or continuing to choke our oceans.”

Low-grade and non-recyclable waste which includes rope, broken plastic bottles and cotton buds are shredded and pressed, and then made into sheets which then fit together to make the litter collection station.
