Like many people, Beth Terry didn't think an individual could have much impact on the environment, until she read an article about 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.

Plastic-Free tells a story that could inspire everyday behavior change for all of us. Small steps, leading to one big milestone: a planet free of plastic pollution. The power lies with each of us to take these steps. It is that simple. --Daniella Dimitrova Russo, cofounder and executive director, Plastic Pollution Coalition
Beth Terry started her crusade against plastic overconsumption three years ago when she started her blog, My Plastic-free Life (formerly called Fake Plastic Fish), which is now the number one blog on plastic-free living in the world. By day, she does accounting for a local Bay Area home care agency. By night, she blogs. She lives with her husband in Oakland, California.
