Share

OTTAWA, ON, April 23, 2024 /PRNewswire/ — EARTHDAY.ORG, is shining a light on the plastic industry and their apparent indifference to the health implications of microplastics and their toxic chemicals.  Strokes, cancers, obesity, male infertility, ADHD and more have all been associated with plastics.

"We know that the plastic industry doesn’t give a fork about the planet," said Tom Cosgrove, Chief Creative & Content Officer, EARTHDAY.ORG. "It’s time for the plastic industry to come clean – what do they know about microplastics and their impact on human health.

"We want to thank our partners, Extra Credit Projects and Out of Home Advertising Association of America (OAAA) for helping us get the message about plastics out there with this campaign," said Aidan Charron, Director of End Plastic Initiatives.  "The fork is all over the world and making its point."

As well as making their point in Ottawa, EARTHDAY.ORG took their message to Times Square in NYC, projecting PLASTIC IS TOXIC.

"It’s the best way to get the message out there, because plastics are not inert, they degrade over time and shed microplastics that in turn leach out toxic chemicals," said Kathleen Rogers, President. "We are all breathing them in and ingesting them involuntarily, but the industry won’t talk about it." We need to know what they know.
