Today, co-founder of Take 3, Tim Silverwood, visited our school. He spoke to the grade two – six students about the Take 3 initiatives.
Take 3 is a not-for-profit organisation that encourages people to keep marine areas clean. They encourage visitors to beaches, waterways or other marine regions to “take 3” pieces of rubbish with them when they leave. Take 3’s other significant message is that we need to try hard to use less plastic.
Tim shared some facts and images which clearly showed the impact that marine debris, particularly plastic, can have on marine life.
We watched a video titled “The Majestic Plastic Bag” which highlights how plastic bags end up in our oceans.
In 2013, Take 3 was featured on the Behind the News program. You can watch the story below.
