About Take 3
'Take 3' is a not-for-profit organisation formed in Australia in 2009 that aims to raise awareness of plastic pollution (marine debris) by encouraging each visitor to the beach, waterway or...anywhere to simply take 3 pieces of rubbish with them when they leave and dispose of it thoughtfully. We also encourage everyone to reduce unnecessary plastic consumption - and make our lives a little less plastic!
'Take 3' aims to expand their message throughout Australia and the world and the group has already recieved widespread acclaim for their simple yet powerful message. In March 2011 'Take 3' was awarded the Innaugural 'Taronga Conservation Society Green Grant' and a $50, 000 purse to help develop the organisation. Take 3 now have a growing network of supporters and Chapters around the world.
Take 3's mission is to significantly reduce global plastic pollution through education and participation. We encourage people everywhere to educate and inspire others; participate in clean up activities and to share their story. Together, we can reduce global plastic pollution.
Please contact us if you would like more information or have ideas on how Take 3 could be incorporated in your organisation.
Remember... the ocean is downhill from everywhere. Pick it up. Bin it. #Take3fortheSea
