Here is their story:
"Wherever we are, we are connected to the sea. The ocean provides us with the oxygen we breathe and the climate that sustains us. We need a healthy ocean for our own survival.
Plastic pollution is killing wildlife, devastating oceans and threatening the health of our planet. Plastic represents a disconnection. It’s a material designed to last forever that we often use only once. Poorly managed plastic leaks into the sea. The ocean is downhill from everywhere.
Through education that inspires participation, Take 3 is building a global movement of people who are connected to the planet.
Join our movement today.
Take 3 believes in simple actions to address complex problems.
How can we stop plastic pollution from killing wildlife and suffocating our planet?
In 2009, two friends set about answering this question. Marine ecologist, Roberta Dixon-Valk and youth educator, Amanda Marechal developed Take 3 – an idea where a simple action could produce profound consequences. Joining forces with environmentalist, Tim Silverwood, the trio publicly launched Take 3 as an organisation in 2010.
Take 3 pieces of rubbish with you when you leave the beach, waterway or…anywhere, and you have made a difference.
The Take 3 for the Sea movement was born."
What an awesome idea - remove at least 3 pieces of garbage from the beach whenever you go.
