Greenpeace Philippines, Dead Whale CampaignView the policy document
Key FindingsView the policy document
The Dead Whale campaign was an art exhibition of a whale which had died due to ingested plastic. Created from reclaimed and recycled ocean plastic, Greenpeace Philippines hoped that this installation would encourage the public to take action and refuse plastic, and to influence leaders attending a summit of the Association of SouthEast Asian Nations (ASEAN) (Cresta, 2018). The viral effect both online and in traditional print media spurred conversation about the marine life of the Philippines and the worsening case of plastic pollution. In a span of 24 hours, an online petition gained 3,000 signatures (Furman, 2017).
Through an analytical framework, we've reviewed over 100 plastic policies. These reviews determine the effectiveness of policies in reducing plastic pollution and we offer recommendations in light of this evidence, to enhance future policy making.
