In this first entry on institutions' campaigns to raise awareness of the "Plastic Plague", I'm using the title from an exhibit at the Albuquerque BioPark.
The AZA Mid-Year Meeting, including we from the Green Summit, visited this past March. We saw some good green efforts, including this plastic messaging approach.
I particularly like the chalk board for creating pledges. Public commitments to green changes are indicators of increased likelihood of behavior change.
Best of all, the BioPark follows up on this messaging with no plastic bags in the multiple gift shops on site. The ones they do use, they give for free and they're made from recycled content. Good job Wildlife Trading Company.
....because this stuff never goes away.
