A journey to a better future

"Traditionally, the biggest culprits of climate change are situated in the wealthy, developed world. But, it's the smaller countries and indigenous cultures globally that suffer the most. It’s our obligation to stand with, and provide a voice for those who are affected the most by these changes to the world we live in."

Simon Bernardino - Co-Founder - The Lab17

"We believe and are passionate about impacting one of the worlds greatest challenges, right as we hit a fork in the road on climate change. Not only for today, but for future generations the road we are heading down could have terrible consequences."

Nick Ingall - Co-Founder - The Lab17

Illuminating Communities Initiative

800 million people worldwide still don’t have access to modern electricity, severely limiting their potential. This means that when the sun goes down, they’re reliant on dangerous and unhealthy energy like kerosene, diesel, wood,
candles or battery powered torches, which is expensive and unhealthy for people and the planet, and severely impacts opportunities to thrive.

SolarBuddy is dedicated to educating and empowering the next generation to change the lives of children living in energy poverty via its innovative education programs. It’s programs offer a tangible solution to a real world problem that impacts millions of people.

Our latest donation to SolarBuddy is contributing to their Illuminating Communities Initiative. 


Take 3 pieces of rubbish with you when you leave the beach, waterway, or anywhere and you have made a difference.
Through education that inspires participation, Take 3 is building a global movement of people who are connected to the planet.
Wherever we are, we are connected to the sea. The ocean provides us with the oxygen we breathe and the climate that sustains us. We need a healthy ocean for our own survival.
Plastic pollution is killing wildlife, devastating oceans and threatening the health of our planet. Plastic represents a disconnection. It’s a material designed to last forever that we often use only once. Poorly managed plastic leaks into the sea. The ocean is downhill from everywhere.

We've joined the #Take3ForTheSea movement as an official supporter, to take simple actions to address complex problems, helping to stop plastic pollution from killing wildlife and suffocating our planet.
