Planet or Plastic

It's about time corporations, individuals, publications, and businesses work together and do their parts to curb the worldwide plastic problem, and it seems @natgeo is all hand on deck.

National Geographic has launched 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. The June 2018 issue takes an in-depth look at the tile single-use plastic plays in our society and the impact it has on our environment. 

As part of the initiative, the magazine released a beta site, Planet or Plastic, which houses dozens of articles that include the history of plastic to projected effects of plastic on humans to what we can do to reduce our own single-use plastics.

Some must-read articles:
