ceo clean-up initiative

Plastic pollution is one of the biggest threats to oceans, marine life and the broader environment. Over 8 million tonnes of new plastic enters the ocean each year, and by 2050, there will be more plastic in the ocean than fish.

Every day, businesses across Australia are adding to this problem. But YOU can be part of the solution.

The Take 3 CEO Clean-Up events are the first of their kind, providing business leaders the opportunity to lead by example and make a positive change in their community.

Will your business be a leader for a cleaner Australia?

our story

Take 3 believes in simple actions to address complex problems. In 2009, two local friends asked themselves, how can we stop plastic pollution from killing wildlife and suffocating our planet?

To answer this question, Roberta Dixon-Valk and Amanda Marechal developed an idea where a simple action could produce profound consequences. Joining forces with environmentalist Tim Silverwood, the trio established Take 3 as an organisation and launched it publicly in 2010.

Their message was simple, Take 3 pieces of rubbish with you when you leave the beach, waterway or...anywhere, and you have made a difference.
