Could you gather some used bags and tie them together to ring the National Geographic building? Would be a good way to show how many bags are used eg. this took X bags, but NG uses XX every month.

That's basically what i was going to suggest! I remember when the magazine was delivered in a brown paper sleeve. I guess someone a long time ago thought the magazines were getting wet if the mailman was delivering in the rain? I don't recall any soggy issues.

That would be a great way to show them to stop.

Well, what's the alternative? Paper bags do not seem to do a good job of keeping the magazines protected from the elements (to which they are exposed all the time when home delivered).

Lowe's also has bins for plastic bags, batteries, cell phones and recyclable light bulbs. Most grocery stores also sell reusable grocery bags for about $1.00, with their logo.

Plastic is recyclable, and I am certainly not going to fly to DC every month to pick up my magazine with a reusable grocery bag.

National Geographic of all companies should know the harm plastic bags have on all animals on this planet!

this is a high class mag and it surprises me they are not yet 'with' it.

National Geographic is all about showing pictures of beautiful natural landscapes. Let's Photoshop their own most famous pictures and show case them decorated with their own bags hanging off of trees, tangled on birds and fish, african tribes using them to cover their tents, any other creative ideas that use their own pictures with their bags.

As a journal involved in nature protection you should stop using plastic bags as one of the first ones..

End the use of plastic bags if you want to preserve planet and wildlife. Reuse your old ones.
