Take 3 For The Sea Barwon River Clean-Up 2024

On the 15th of March 2024, Feltex held our largest Take 3 for the Sea clean-up event to date, but this time in our Head Office’s backyard alongside the Barwon River with our biggest team yet! We are proud to be an official supporter of the Take 3 for the Sea organisation for the fourth year in a row.
In just an hour, our team of 40 people, along with Take 3 for the Sea representatives, collected 1,488 litter items weighing an astounding 34.5kg altogether! Take 3 for the Sea is an important organisation that works to remove litter from our environment which helps to protect our animals, ecosystems, and waterways.

The Feltex team joined forces with Take 3 for the Sea along the Barwon River in South Geelong for a riverside clean-up event. A total of 34.5kg was collected by the Feltex team, totalling 1488 items in one hour, the litter filled 5 garbage bags! 

"It was fantastic to see some familiar faces for the annual clean-up. The turnout was great for a Friday afternoon with about 40 staff members joining in to clean up their office’s backyard! Their enthusiasm and dedication was awesome to see, with some groups spending almost the whole clean up in one spot, carefully collecting the enormous amount of cigarette butts and other rubbish from a car park.” Abbey Jacob, Take 3 for the Sea Educator

Continued support of Take 3 for the Sea

Feltex makes an annual donation to Take 3 for the Sea. Contributing to their clean-ups and education programs for schools and local communities has so far helped over 350,000 students learn about solutions to ocean pollution. We are proud to continue to support Take 3 for the Sea as we strive to preserve our oceans and waterways.
Take 3 from the Sea’s call to action is to ‘Take 3 pieces of rubbish with you when you leave the beach, waterway or anywhere and you have made a difference.’
