25 million plastic straws end up in our oceans each year. Greenpeace wanted to rally the world in a global protest to end their use. Not by marching in the streets, but by leveraging an existing behaviour, Instagram. We created the first ever global protest on Instagram Stories by creating GIFs that publicly shamed offending businesses into action.
