Starting this World Earth Day (Thursday, April 22), 4 Pines venues across NSW and VIC will sell Take 3 Beach Clean-Up Kits for $32. Each Take 3 clean-up kit includes the supplies you need to safely clean-up at your local beach all in a Take 3 Tote bag. In addition, 4 Pines are providing three bonus pints (worth $36), to share with mates, to every bag.
Using business and beer as a force for good is part of 4 Pines’ commitment to ‘Brew Better’. As proud 1% for the Planet members, 4 Pines has provided $25,000 to help Take 3 reach their goal of removing 10 million pieces of rubbish from our oceans and waterways this year.
Chris Willcock, 4 Pines Chief Brewer said: “For us, it’s about our quest to leave the world better than we inherited it. Encouraging people to take small actions like doing a clean-up with mates is a no brainer.”
“As a sustainable and community-minded brewery, being Take 3’s first official beach clean-up kit stockist is a further step in the right direction to tackle plastic pollution.”
“Our venues have been plastic straw free since 2016, and we keep implementing ways to reduce waste across our breweries and supply chain with the aim of becoming totally plastic and waste free.”
More needs to be done to tackle plastic pollution. Australia alone consumes an estimated 3.5 million tonnes of plastic every year, while only 9% of all the plastic ever produced has been recycled, 12% has been burned and the remaining 79% has ended up in landfills or the environment.
Take 3 CEO Sarah Beard added: “We are delighted to confirm 4 Pines as our official beach clean-up stockist in Australia and latest corporate partner.”
“4 Pines is committed to doing better for our planet and wanted to find a way to not only join our global movement but ensure the partnership had both an action and an impact, two things we are passionate about at Take 3.
“The money from this partnership will have a direct impact on our ongoing efforts to keep our oceans and waterways clear of plastic.
“The added dimension of selling Take 3 clean-up kits at 4 Pines venues is hugely exciting. It not only allows us to reach a new audience but also helps inspire others to take up the challenge and Take 3 for the Sea.”
