Perhaps Nat Geo could come up with a more secure and earth friendly way to ensure that their inserts do not get lost in the mail.

Every community has, our should have, recycle Bins. That's where I throw my plastic bags, even though I wish that the Mag. could be delivered in another way, however it is, there is sill a challenge on the environment. Paper comes out of trees that a needed for clean air. I like my Nat Geo mag, and I am sure they will find a solution.

Dear Friends I am Happy that You All are So Sensitive About Plastic but What About Paper on Which National Geographic is Printed??? Forests are being Destroyed for Paper :)

one of the issues is that I live in San Francisco. I am not really able to make it out to DC to deliver/do anything to headquarters directly. The question is who to send the packages, emails, photoshopped photos to... Thoughts?

I love National Geographic and I support their authority, I hope they can clear this plastic thing quickly; many animals die because of plastics discarded in natural environments. I'm also glad that we are all trying to make positive changes worldwide. Thank you Shahariar for including me because I care. Nat Geo, let's move forward! Rafi

Tell your local politicians to supply Recycle Bins. The trash collectors are making a mint on trash for energy. Get them to pay for the bins. Check on New Bedford, Massachusetts. Great Bins for plastic and other recyclable items.

In Thailand we receive Nat Geo in brown(recycled) paper wrap.

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.

I live in Japan, a country with almost no natural resources. The plastic and general waste here is beyond description.

además en la edición español latinoamericano, de editorial Televisa, la revista ha decaído bastante con una página sí y otra también de anuncios. Cancelé mi suscripción, no voy a estar pagando para ver un catálogo, además que la publicidad es basura consumista disfrazada de "productos verdes"
