Mother Nature needs us – The 5 Things Clear Initiative

Just over a week ago I was unfortunate enough to see a sea bird struggling to stay alive because it had a plastic ring wrapped around its head.
The bird was in distress and was also starving has hadn't been able to feed.
I took it to the vets but it sadly died due to the shock of it all. I took myself off to the toilet and cried. This needn't have happened.

This is the rather sad video I took of the bird.

I then happened to watch a very sad video about a whale (see below this text) coming into port that was sick and dieing.
They had to sadly shoot it and when the whale was hauled onto the dockside they cut it open and found its stomach was filled with plastic bags.
This for me was the last straw. Through the tears I made the decision that I had to do something, and it was then whilst being out in Mother Nature and walking down a beach close by called Hell's Mouth, that I saw a lot of people walking off the beach empty handed and yet, the beach was littered with rubbish.
Discarded plastic bottles. caps, and lots of other rubbish that is damaging the wildlife.
As I picked up some of it, I had the idea that if we all picked up just 5 pieces of litter and binned it properly or better still recycled, very quickly we could all make a huge difference.
So the #5ThingsClear initiative was born. 25th June 2017.

Less than 7 days later the Facebook page has been created along with Instagram and the support has been incredible.

As you can see from the photo below the podcast, so many people are getting involved from the USA, Canada, Philippines and across Europe too.

I am so humbled and filled with love for how much this has grown and how quickly.
