Hundreds of companies and institutions should expect a questionnaire in early October about their use of plastic, with the launch of the Plastic Disclosure Project.
The project is the brainchild of Doug Woodring, an environmental entrepreneur in Hong Kong, The New York Times reports. The initiative will officially launch in September.
