National Geographic’s June magazine cover has people talkingPosted on May 22, 2018 by DrRossH in Plastic Waste News
National Geographic’s chillingly shrewd June magazine cover has people talking.
The classic orange-yellow frame surrounds a picture of a plastic bag submerged underwater with one of its tips pointing out of glacial-blue waters and made to look like an iceberg.
“Planet or plastic?” the words on the cover read.
“The 18 billion pieces of plastic that end up in the ocean each year are just the tip of the iceberg,” a caption in smaller print reads.
National Geographic’s senior photo editor, Vaughn Wallace, posted the image by Mexican artist Jorge Gamboa on Twitter Wednesday, and it’s now spreading across the Internet faster than the glaciers are melting.
Great story that hopefully reaches millions of people.
