This fundraiser is for an amazing Australian charity whose mission is to encourage us to collect 3 pieces of rubbish in any outdoor location to avoid unwanted items ending up in the ocean.
In Australia, we're sadly responsible for using:
Micro-particles of plastic are consumed by the fish and molluscs we eat every day. As yet, we are unsure what these micro-particles actually do in our digestive systems and what the long-term health implications are. I’d rather not find out.
Every single $1 counts. Seriously. You’re contribution matters. Let’s rally together.
By mobilising AVEDA Teams, our goal is to raise $100,000 during the STOP Ocean Plastic Pollution Fundraiser. All fundraising efforts go directly towards Take 3 programs aimed at removing 1.5 million pieces of rubbish, conserving the environment and protecting wildlife from the impacts of plastic pollution and waste.
TAKE 3 FOR THE SEA
Take 3 is an Australian charity removing rubbish from the environment through education programs, international campaigns and clean-ups. Take 3's call to action is simple: Take 3 pieces of rubbish with you when you leave the beach, waterway or... anywhere and you have made a difference.
The message has sparked a global movement that encourages everyone to get involved and help protect our oceans from plastic pollution. Take 3 has educated over half a million students through school education programs, more than 100,000 people have participated at Take 3 clean-ups and events, and the global #Take3fortheSea campaign has sparked the removal of over 30 million pieces of rubbish from the environment.
The ocean provides us with the oxygen we breathe and the climate that sustains us. We need a healthy ocean for our own survival. Yet plastic pollution is killing wildlife, devastating oceans and threatening the health of our planet. Plastic represents a disconnection. It’s a material designed to last forever that we often use only once. Poorly managed plastic leaks into the sea as the ocean is downhill from everywhere.
