National Geographic inspires viewers through its smart, innovative programming that questions what we know, how we view the world and what drives us forward. With a focus on the core goals of exploration and education that the National Geographic Society emphasizes, National Geographic challenges perceptions and allows viewers to push back against the boundaries of exploration.

Each year, 9 million tons of plastic waste ends up in the world’s ocean. The Planet or Plastic? campaign of National Geographic aims to raise awareness about the global plastic trash crisis.

The Philippines is the third largest contributor of plastic waste in the ocean. About 79 percent of branded plastic residual wastes came from food packaging, followed by household and personal care products with 12 and eight percent, respectively.*
