Brentwood Forest teams up with global environmental movement, Take 3 for the Sea
This year, AVID Property Group (AVID) kicked off its partnership with the international movement, Take 3 for the Sea and our Brentwood Forest community is next on the list to help clean up our waterways and fight the battle against plastic pollution.
In partnership with Take 3, Brentwood Forest will be hosting a series of free local events on Friday 16 and Saturday 17 November during National Recycling Week.
As Queensland continues to take action against single-use plastic with its recent plastic bag ban, AVID is looking to influence change in each of its residential communities in collaboration with Take 3 co-founder and environmentalist Tim Silverwood.
AVID Property Group General Manager Queensland Bruce Harper said the Brentwood Forest team was eager to expand its environmental legacy by encouraging the reduction of plastic pollution in the environment.
“We are committed to sustainability here at AVID and are excited to join Take 3 in its mission to create a cleaner marine environment for future generations – we are encouraging the Greater Springfield community to join us in taking three for the sea,” Mr Harper said.
“The ‘Take 3’ message is so easy, everyone can make a difference – simply pick-up three pieces of rubbish as you leave the park, beach, waterway or anywhere and you’ve helped contribute to keeping our environment clean.”
AVID and Take 3 will host an exclusive free film screening of award-winning environmental documentary, Blue, on Friday 16 November and a community clean-up morning at Brentwood Forest’s Tucker Family Park on Saturday 17 November.
Take 3 co-founder Tim Silverwood said the environment and its wildlife faced a devastating future, unless local communities took action.
“We are at a point in time where schools, businesses and the wider community need to all work together to protect the environment for our future,” Mr Silverwood said.
“The entire Take 3 team and I are thrilled to be partnering with a company that is committed to sustainability and spreading the message of reducing plastic pollution in our communities.”
Take 3 is a not-for-profit organisation that encourages Australian’s to take three items of rubbish with them when they leave a public place to prevent harmful waste from making its way into our oceans, affecting marine life.
