Take 3 For the Sea

MobileMuster, has teamed up with not-for-profit organisation, Take 3 for the Sea, to support its mission to reduce plastic pollution in our oceans. We have set a target to collect at least 30,000 old mobile phones over January and February 2019, for every mobile phone that is recycled with MobileMuster it will help Take 3 for the Sea remove plastics from our oceans and waterways. This means that Australians can declutter their homes, help save precious resources by recycling their old phones and clean up the environment.

Remember you can help Take 3 for the Sea by collecting 3 pieces of rubbish when you leave the beach, waterway or park. You can also snap and share a photo with #Take3fortheSea to inspire others. Support the movement and do your bit to reduce plastic pollution in our oceans.

Read our top tips for a cleaner environment

1. Plan to use less plastics

The best way to reduce the amount of plastic waste entering our oceans is to simply cut it off at the source and reduce the amount of plastic being used in the first place. You can start by taking simple steps such as remembering your reusable shopping bags when you go to the supermarket to buy groceries. This will not only clean up the environment but reduce the clutter in your kitchen cupboards.

2. Say goodbye to single-use

Water and other drink containers are one of the biggest sources of plastic waste in our oceans. Swap out single-use coffee cups and water bottles to reusable options. So, wave goodbye to plastic waste and say hello to a cleaner environment.

3. Clear out your ‘old stuff’ drawers to start afresh

A clean house can help provide a clear mind, so start the year anew with a home “detox”. Take three minutes to declutter your drawers and dig out your old mobile phones to recycle them. Also, this summer when you recycle your old phone with MobileMuster you’ll be helping Take 3 for the Sea reduce plastic pollution in our oceans.

4. Swap out plastic straws

It is estimated that Australians use 10 million straws a day and when they end up in oceans and waterways, they can have devastating impact on marine life. It’s time to swap out your plastic straws and choose metal or paper ones or try going without to help prevent this problem getting worse.

5. It’s time to Take 3

Next time you are out, remember to Take 3 pieces of rubbish when you leave the beach, waterway or park. You can also snap and share a photo with #Take3fortheSea to inspire others. Support the movement and do your bit to reduce plastic pollution in our oceans.
