The “Who cares about this Planet?” Challenge follows the company’s 2011 launch of iQ, a new line of eco-friendly household cleaning products that questioned conventional cleaning, and features an innovative new packaging system that allows consumers to reduce plastic waste by over 80%.

To support the “Who cares about this Planet?” challenge, Planet People worked with a Toronto based and emerging Spoken Word artist, Made Wade and Filmmakers Eighteen Eighty to create a thought provoking short film that encourages viewers to question their own commitment to the planet.
