About this book

Like many people, Beth Terry didn't think an individual could have much impact on the environment, until she read an article the oceans filling with plastic while she was recovering from a surgery. She decided that day to kick her plastic habit, and now she wants to teach you how you can too. In her quirky and humorous writing, well known to her blog readers, Terry provides personal anecdotes, basic information about the environmental and health problems related to plastic, and offers personal solutions and tips on how to limit your plastic footprint. She includes handy quick lists and charts for easy reference, ways to get involved in larger community actions, and profiles of individuals who have gone beyond personal solutions to create a change on a larger scale. Plastic-Free is both a practical guide and the story of a personal journey from helplessness to empowerment.
