‘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. We also encourage everyone to reduce their 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 with the help of the team at Taronga Zoo.
They aim to build on existing partnerships that will see the message target the wider community of beach users including surfers, fishermen, recreational boaters, surf life savers and everyone living on the coastal fringe.
