Editorial Reviews

Beth Terry was once, like everyone else, addicted to plastic. After reading an article describing plastic pollution in our oceans, she became determined to live a plastic-free life. Beth Terry's candid and emotional narration make listening to Plastic-Free: How I Kicked the Plastic Habit and How You Can Too a shared experience with the author. Packed with information, anecdotes, and advice, Terry gives the listener convincing reasons to trade the convenience of plastic for more responsible solutions. From sweatshirts to toothpaste, from old glasses to packaged food, Terry’s upbeat and heartfelt guide challenges listeners to become activists in the fight to reduce pollution.

Publisher's Summary

Like many people, Beth Terry 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 fans 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 - 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-listen for anyone concerned about the ongoing health and happiness of themselves, their children, and the planet.

Entertaining and interesting read

I really enjoyed this book. Keeping track of all the links mentioned was pretty difficult with an audiobook. Trying too take notes while listening detracted from the experience. Including a pdf file for the links would really improve this book.

Wonderful inspiring insight!

I started listening to this audio book in July when I took the plasticfreejuly.org challenge.

I do my best to refuse, reuse and recycle but I wanted to increase my knowledge of how I could do this more. This book is it! It's helpful with years of knowledge that Beth has built up. I am thankful for that and it has inspired me to do more. Together we can achieve more.

Thank you so much!
