GSC plays an integral role in the Galapagos Inter-Institutional Commission for Responsible Plastics Use

Beginning in 2012, the plenary of the Galapagos Governing Council (CGREG), the highest government instance in Galapagos, voted to implement the recommendations from a study conducted by a consultant from the Galapagos National Park Directorate (GNPD) on the use of disposable plastics in Galapagos, with a focus on the t-shirt type plastic bags, to provide the baseline for an action plan to reduce their use (Diaz, 2011).
