Welcome to Take 3!


The 'Take 3' message is simple: take 3 pieces of rubbish with you when you leave the beach, waterway or... anywhere and you have made a difference.  

Marine debris, particularly plastic, has a disastrous impact in our oceans on marine life and, ultimately, us. We can greatly reduce the amount of marine debris in our oceans by preventing it from getting there in the first place! We encourage people to Refuse disposable plastic, Reduce, Re-Use, Recycle and Respond by picking up rubbish. 

We want to educate the world about this complex problem by inspiring simple actions.

Take 3 won the inaugural "Taronga Conservation Society Green Grant" in 2011 and has since grown from a grass-roots organisation to a global voice on marine debris. Are you ready to help Take 3 reach the world? We encourage you to share your story on social media and inspire others to #Take3fortheSea.

Remember: Pick it up. Bin it. #Take3forthesea and you will make a difference!
