Plastic Free is recommended reading for inspiration, insight and understanding. Have you ever wondered how a simple idea by one person turns into a global initiative impacting millions? Or how social media can be a positive agent for change? Rebecca Prince-Ruiz had no idea how far a spontaneous statement would take her, or how her life would change when she refused plastic for a month. If you’ve had a niggling feeling that you should do more to reduce plastic usage this book offers plenty of gentle encouragement, handy tips and great examples, with both the problems identified and solutions offered having a WA-specific context. Joanne Atherfold Finn captures Rebecca’s drive for a healthier planet without a hint of preaching or unachievable demands on the reader. This is a book to read and, in the spirit of re-use and recycle, pass on to friends to inspire one more tiny change.
