What an incredible turnout at our #Take3fortheSea events on 22 and 23 June!
We were overwhelmed with the number of locals and budding environmentalists who joined us in learning about how we can reduce plastic pollution and do more to protect our marine environment.
On Friday 22 June, we had an incredible day at the Montessori International College in Forest Glen, where Take 3 co-founder Tim Silverwood spoke with students on the issue of plastic pollution and the message behind #Take3forthesea. After a mini clean-up around the school, more than 40 students learnt how they could make a difference both at home and out in their community.
We were then joined by more than 200 Sunshine Coast locals of our exclusive screening of the award-winning documentary, Blue the film, at the University of the Sunshine Coast on Friday evening.
Following the thought-provoking film, Tim Silverwood hosted a fascinating Q&A session that saw audience members jump at the chance to ask Tim for his suggestions how to make simple changes to help protect our marine environment.
On Saturday morning, more than 70 people turned out to help #Take3fortheSea at Mooloolaba Beach with Take 3 and AVID. Participants spent just one hour to collect a staggering 80kg of waste from the beach and surrounding areas, with the clean-up session followed by a full waste audit and discussion with Tim Silverwood.
Thank you to everyone who joined us – we certainly learnt a lot and hope you did too. Be sure to check out our Facebook page for all the event day photos and don’t forget to tag yourself and your friends.
