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.

Are they home compostable?
If so, how long to compost?
If not, how can they be composted?
Do 100% of your customers have access to those facilities?
Is it marked clearly on packaging what to do? Do you run a take back scheme for those who don't have access to composting?

When your party ended nurses bursaries they basically turned off the tap. Why would anyone pay to work on an NHS ward and then get shit money, no wage rises and disrespect from government? Would you?

Great solution to a difficult problem.

BAKEOFF!!!!

Seeing as it was the Bakeoff final yesterday I thought I'd share a little story with you. It was one of the most, if not the most toe curlingy cringeworthy day in my life.

I have never wished the ground would open up and swallow me, but on this day, I did.

On the 10th day of Q'rantine,
my true love gave to me,
Ten cronies’ contracts
Nine advisors resigning
Eight PPE chums a laughing
Seven U Turns spinning
Six MPs lying
Five “Next slide please”,
Four coloured charts,
Three COVID experts,
Two toilet rolls
And an eye test in an SUV

@campervanliving Nine Doctors crying..?
