Pick Up 3 is a charity based in San Diego, California, that was set up by high school student Cobi Emery.  The core message of Pick Up 3 is that if each of us picks up just three pieces of trash each time we leave the beach, then collectively we will start to make a difference.  As part of Initiative Surf’s Youth Development programmes, students are encouraged to pick up three in the hope that it will become a habit for the future and that we can leave the beach a little bit better than we found it.
