Living is about givingIn June of 2017, I witnessed a sea bird die because of some discarded plastic. I was deeply upset and decided I needed to do something. I saw so many people enjoying the local beach but no one helping to pick up the litter. There was so much that had been washed up I thought that maybe people thought picking up a few bits wouldn't make a difference. 'If only everyone picked up just 5 pieces of litter, then the beach would be clear pretty quickly' I thought and that's when the idea for the initiative appeared. 5 Things Clear.
That evening I set up 5ThingsClear on Instagram and Facebook with the aim to inspire people to pick up just 5 pieces of litter each day. In less than 2 months 5ThingsClear had grown across the globe with lots of people taking part to do their bit each and every day. In the first half of 2019 the community had picked up over 150,000 pieces of litter and this figure continues to grow daily.
