Nat Geo Mag's Latest Issue About Plastic Pollution Came Wrapped In A Plastic Cover

Irony soon found a way after a social media user pointed out that the issue about the plastic pollution in ocean came wrapped in a plastic cover

To sensitise people about the consequences of growing plastic pollution, popular wildlife magazine Nat Geo came up with a brilliant cover showing a plastic bag floating in the ocean resembling an iceberg indicating its just the tip that we see. The magazine issued for 2018’s June edition conveyed a strong message as how humans are hell-bent on destroying marine life by dumping all the plastic waste in the ocean.

However, irony soon found a way after a social media user pointed out that the issue about the plastic pollution in ocean came wrapped in a plastic cover.

NAT Geo quickly noticed the tweet and came up with a clarification.

Soon other twitter users joined in:

While some pointed out where the problem actually lies.

Others were clearly displeased with the magazine’s blunder

Others had a word of advice for the mag

The magazine’s faux pas was reminiscent of the recent meeting of Maharashtra chief minister Devendra Fadnavis who along with his ministers was chairing a meet on world environment discussing the measures to end the plastic pollution while having plastic bottles right in front of them.
