Being outside and enjoying our natural world is something we hold dear to our hearts but images like the below remind us how damaging we have been to our incredible environment.
Combatting the increasing polution of our favourite place, the ocean, is Take 3. Take 3 is a non-profit organisation that spreads a very simple message - every time you visit the beach, local waterway or anywhere really, make sure to take at least 3 pieces of rubbish with you. If everyone of us took 3 pieces of rubbish after enjoying the outdoors it would significantly assist in reducing marine debris. No more floating islands of plastic waste, penguins caught in beer can holders or diving into a swarm of old shopping bags.
This simple attitude to keeping the environment clean is something we are super inspired by. Every little helps and taking responsibility for the actions of all of humanity will keep this planet beautiful in the long run.
