Martin Dorey is a writer, surfer, photographer, presenter, cook and campaigner for the #2MinuteBeachClean. He writes about camping, fun, outdoor food, living the outdoor life and having adventures in his VW camper van and contributes regularly to CampsitedCoast Magazine, Camping Magazine and Motorhome and Motorcaravan Monthly Magazine. Martin’s first book, The Camper Van Cookbook, inspired the BBC TV series One Man and His Camper Van in which Martin cooked and camped his way around the UK. It has now aired all over the world. The follow-up book, The Camper Van Coast, celebrates Martin’s love for coastal living, playing, cooking and eating.

Martin’s third book, The Camper Van Bible, was published in June 2016, and has been described as THE definitive glove-box bible for anyone who owns or ‘would die for’ a camper van.

A writing career came late for Martin after a 12-year stint in the advertising and film industry as an Assistant Director on some of the more famous 90s TV commercials – Guinness, Levis, Gold Blend, Oxo — as well as promos for The Rolling Stones, Paul McCartney, Annie Lennox (among others), a documentary about legendary British cameraman Jack Cardiff and various TV series and film projects.

The #2minutebeachclean campaign has been taking Martin in all kinds of directions of late. From being an idea to inspire others to help clean beaches it has grown into a global campaign with many thousands of followers and posts to Instagram from every continent, including Antarctica. The idea has been used in Ireland and the UK as well as in Israel and Puerto Rico. Martin has spoken about the campaign at the Blue Flag Operators’ Conference in Holland, was invited to speak at TEDx Kiel University and on BBC’s Springwatch.

I don’t think we’re nearly angry enough about rich people burning down our planet irreversibly so they can get a little richer

Here's the advice:
"Alcohol is the direct route to the mother godess"

He also said:
"As one of my apostles you are shit"

I'm in a pub in Wales. Andy just said to me: "I've had three pints. I'm ready to give you the advice of your fucking life."
He's gone to the loo.
I'm waiting.

Check this out. Apparently people who don't want other people to die are 'do-gooders'. Probably 'bleeding heart liberals' and 'woke' too.

What an utter w*nker.

Our government is such a shithouse I could cry.

I feel so utterly helpless.

I became a local councillor to try and make a difference but with such brutal ignorance, contempt and mismanagement from Westminster, what's the point?

Obvious from Johnson’s demeanour with MPs/media yesterday he thinks his normalisation of lying, gaslighting, broken promises and taking the country for fools is having the desired effect. This is a strategy folks and he thinks it works. MPs, media, public need to prove him wrong's probably got nothing to do with water companies taking vast profits instead of investing in infrastructure either...

... and it's got nothing to do with climate change...

...and a funny way to discover a typo in one of your own books.

Household electrical are the fastest growing waste stream.... time to reassess our obsession with gadgetry?

If I am honest I thought that was a bit too politely put.

How to make litter disappear? We've installed Your Park @2minlitterpick stations in Greville Smyth, Blaise Castle and Keynsham Memorial parks with another due soon in #Bath! Free to use, and a great way to help make green spaces litter free, nature rich habitats.💚#ZeroWasteWeek

I was out on the sea on Sunday on a ski. Two gulls were fighting over a single use face mask. I couldn't get it.

That is truly shit.

Need a reason to pick up, and then quit, plastic?

It's been a really shit week. So I set up a moth trap in the garden. It's better than telly.

2 Min Guide to Beach Cleaning!!!
1. Look out for a #2minutebeachclean station
2. Borrow litter pickers & bags (or take your own)
3. Look along the strandline (line of the last high tide) for plastic.
4. Pick it. Snap it. Tag it.
Wash hands!

Why is there a concerted campaign against GPs in the press?

So that the government can turn public opinion against the NHS, and continue to starve the health service of funds, squeeze wages, and privatise the service. They’re dismantling the NHS.

Get angry at the government.

Or even "second most successful Olympian after Phelps"?

Ahem. Is it just me or should @DameSarahStorey be "GB's most successful Olympian" rather than "GB's most successful Paralympian"?

For me there's no difference.

If you are an Olympian you are an Olympian.
