National Geographic Launches Multi-Year Initiative ~ Planet or Plastic
As the amount of single-use plastics ending up in the world’s oceans continues to grow, National Geographic launched today PLANET OR PLASTIC, a multi-year initiative aimed at raising awareness of the global plastic crisis and reducing the amount of single-use plastic that is polluting our world’s oceans.
This organization-wide effort will include a major research and scientific initiative; a consumer engagement campaign; internal corporate sustainability initiatives; and innovative partnerships with like-minded corporations, non-governmental organizations (NGOs ) and recognized institutions from all over the world.
The launch coincides with the release of the June issue of National Geographic magazine, which takes an in-depth look at the role single-use plastic plays in our society and the impact it has on our environment. Look for the June issue of NatGeo Planet or Plastic on May 29th.
