Plastic Free: Author Talk With Rebecca Prince-Ruiz

13 July @ 5:00 pm - 6:30 pm


Join author Rebecca Prince-Ruiz as she shares the story of the plastic pollution crisis, personal solutions, how Plastic Free July grew to a global challenge, making change and how a photo of a basket of cups at Emu Point cafe went viral and made an impact around the world.

In July 2011, Rebecca Prince-Ruiz challenged herself to go plastic free for the whole month. Starting with a small group of people in the city of Perth, the Plastic Free July movement has grown into a 250-million strong community across 177 countries, empowering people to reduce single-use plastic consumption and create a cleaner future.

This book shows how one of the world’s leading environmental campaigns took off and shares lessons from its success.

Bookings essential. Thanks to Emu Point cafe for sponsoring the event. Light refreshments available.
