Following the success of Take 3’s previous CEO Clean-Ups, Take 3 for the Sea is delighted to announce that we are returning to Manly Cove Beach, Sydney, for our 2022 CEO Clean-Up.
This event, to be held on Friday 6 May 2022, is open to CEOs, directors, business owners and other industry leaders who want to demonstrate leadership on sustainability and make a difference. The Clean-Ups are the first of their kind, providing business leaders with the opportunity to lead by example and make a positive change in their community by cleaning up the local environment, fundraising to support clean oceans and raising awareness of the plastic pollution problem.
Since the inaugural CEO Clean-Up in 2019, 170 CEOs and business leaders have collectively removed more than 56,000 pieces of rubbish from the environment, and raised almost $75,000 for Take 3.

“Funds raised at our CEO Clean-Ups help Take 3 to deliver vital education programs in schools, surf clubs and communities around Australia and the globe.” said Jenny-Lee Scharnboeck, interim CEO of Take 3. “We are focused on achieving the challenging goal of educating one million school children and removing 10 million pieces of litter by 2025, and the 2022 CEO Clean-Up will move us closer to achieving that goal.”
Take 3’s CEO Clean-Ups do more than just remove litter and raise money. They provide a perfect opportunity for the participating business owners to review how their companies use plastic and start taking steps to ‘turn off the tap’ of plastic production.
