#Take3fortheSea visits Brentwood Forest

Brentwood Forest residents and their families joined us over the weekend to learn about how we can reduce plastic pollution and do more to protect our environment and wildlife.

On Friday 16 November, we had an incredible day at Bellbird Park State Secondary College, where Take 3 co-founder Tim Silverwood spoke with more than 70 environmentally conscious Year 7 and 8 science students on the issue of plastic pollution and the message behind #Take3.

That evening we welcomed more than 70 locals to our exclusive film screening and Q&A of the award-winning documentary, Blue, at Event Cinemas Springfield. If you want to watch the film again or share it with others, you can download Blue the film on iTunes and watch it wherever you are.

On Saturday morning, we had a great turn out as residents from the Brentwood and wider communities came down to help us #Take3fortheSea at Tucker Family Park and in surrounding bushland. Participants spent just one hour collecting a wide range of rubbish from the surrounding areas, with the clean-up session followed by a full waste audit and discussion led by Tim Silverwood.

Thank you to all of you who joined us over the weekend – 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.
