My Beach Cleaning Kit
When I first started out, I had my tote bag from 2MinuteBeachClean and nothing else and that is absolutely all you need - a bag and yourself!
However, my little kit has grown and I now carry an array of equipment in my little backpack!!
- Beach Clean bags x 4
- Black bags x 2
- Gloves x 2
- Mini First Aid Kit
- Spade (found this on one of my cleans!)
- Pocket Knife - be careful, not all knives are legal in the UK. If in doubt, don't carry one
- Mini sharps box
- Collapsible litter picker
- Hand Gel!
If you're using the apps to log your finds, you will also want a camera with location tags turned on. I use an old phone, so there's not too much worry if it gets damaged. Following advice from Open Litter Map, I bought an old iPhone from eBay to use for this, as the location tagging is so much better than Android, it's saved me a lot of time filling in GPS black holes!
Update: My litter picker broke after only a couple of outings. I don't tend to use one anyway but if you prefer to use one maybe buy something more substantial - you get what you pay for!!
