WANN: multi-year initiative by National Geographic
WO: world wide Oceans
Take The Pledge Now!
Planet or Plastics? National Geographic launches a multiyear initiative to reduce single-use plastics and
their impact on the world’s oceans.
The plastic pollution problem is in plain sight.
It affects us all.
Together we can reduce single-use plastics and make a lasting impact.
100 trillion plastic bags are used worldwide every year.
Bring your own reusable bag when you shop.
Nearly a million plastic beverages bottles are sold every minute.
Buy your own reusable bottle, use a drinking fountain or buy cans or glass bottles (and make sure to recycle.)
9 million tons of plastic waste ends up in the ocean every year.
Be careful not to litter.
Choose the Planet.
Every Action Matters.
