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.

TAKE YOUR PLEDGE

100 trillion plastic bags are used worldwide every year.

Bring your own reusable bag when you shop.

TAKE YOUR PLEDGE 

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.)

TAKE YOUR PLEDGE 

9 million tons of plastic waste ends up in the ocean every year.

Be careful not to litter. 

TAKE YOUR PLEDGE 

Choose the Planet.

Every Action Matters.
