What is offered to schools:
‘Take 3’ is a not-for-profit organisation formed in 2009 that aims to raise awareness of marine debris by encouraging each visitor to the beach, waterway or…anywhere to simply take 3 pieces of rubbish with them when they leave. They also encourage everyone to reduce their unnecessary plastic consumption – and make our lives a little less plastic!
They don’t have a formal school program at the moment but schools can connect to their free online resources and run their own Take 3 campaign.
The program has:
- resources available (on request)
- online films
- case studies and examples
