Community clean-up and film screening for Take 3 movement
Environmentalist Tim Silverwood will appear at Hoyts Green Hills on Friday night for a free screening of BLUE, before participating in a community clean-up at Maitland Park on Saturday.
The events are being coordinated by AVID Property Group in partnership with Mr Silverwood’s movement, Take 3 for the Sea.
The movement encourages people to take three items of rubbish with them when they leave a public place to prevent them from entering waterways and having a devastating impact on sealife.
BLUE is a documentary film that looks at the impact of pollution, industrialisation and over-fishing on the oceans. The screening will include a Q and A with Mr Silverwood and will begin at 6:30pm on October 26.
On Saturday morning, October 27, Maitland Park will play host to a community clean-up, which will include another Q and A with Mr Silverwood and a free sausage sizzle. The event kicks off at 10am.
Mr Silverwood said that communities needed to act now to prevent oceans and marine life from facing a devastating future.
“We are at a point in time where schools, businesses and the wider community need to work together to protect the environment for our future,” he said.
“Myself and the entire Take 3 team are thrilled to be partnering with a company that is committed to sustainability and spreading the message of reducing plastic pollution in our communities.”
