About this book

About half the total volume of America municipal solid waste is packaging - at least 300 pounds per person each year - and the `upstream' costs in energy and resources used to make the packaging are alarming. As consumers, there's much that can be done, and Paper or Plastic? offers a checklist for consumer action, along with the resources for detailed information on products, programs, and policy operations.
