As we (finally) head in to summer, many of us will be heading to the beach to cool off and enjoy the serenity.
While you’re wandering around and enjoying the sand between your toes, you might notice bottle tops, disposable cutlery, packaging and other random pieces of plastic on the beach.
When I’m visiting the beach I make it a personal mission to pick up any rubbish that’s in my path and take it to the bin. Sometimes I’m a bit obsessive and end up with armfuls of debris – but that’s just the neat freak in me coming out. Imagine my joy when I discovered the wonderful organisation Take3. I am not alone in my beach cleaning habits, and guess what – you can join in too!
The message of Take3 is simple – take 3 pieces of rubbish with you when you leave the beach, waterway or… anywhere and you have made a difference.
I love the idea that through a lot of people taking small actions we can together make a big impact.
So when you’re at the beach this summer challenge yourself to Take3.
