A practical guide to ridding your life--and the planet--of plastic!
NEW Updated Paperback Edition with foreword by musician Jack Johnson!
“I am excited to see a second edition of Plastic-Free by Beth Terry. Beth’s book, with its ingenuity, hands-on examples, and humor will serve as an inspiration and educational resource to readers. The pages that follow provide a toolkit for actionable behavior change at home, work, and in the wider world.“ —Jack Johnson, musician, cofounder of the Kokua Hawai’i Foundation
We have great respect and admiration for Beth Terry. She is a friend, inspiration, and deeply committed fellow plastic-free activist. She can help you change your life for the better...
Like many people, she didn't think an individual could have much impact on the environment. But while laid up after surgery, she read an article about the staggering amount of plastic polluting the oceans and decided then and there to kick her plastic habit. Now she wants to teach you how you can too.
In her quirky and humorous style -- well known to the readers of her popular blog, My Plastic-free Life -- Terry provides personal anecdotes, stats about the environmental and health problems related to plastic, and personal solutions and tips on how to limit your plastic footprint. Terry includes handy lists and charts for easy reference, ways to get involved in larger community actions, and profiles of individuals -- Plastic-Free Heroes (even including us, yay! Thanks Beth!) -- who have gone beyond personal solutions to create a change on a larger scale.
Plastic-Free also includes chapters on letting go of eco-guilt, strategies for coping with overwhelming problems, and ways to relate to other people who aren't as far along on the plastic-free path. Both a practical guide and the story of a personal journey from helplessness to empowerment, Plastic-Free is a must-read for anyone concerned about the ongoing health and happiness of themselves, their children, and the planet.
