Description
'We have a responsibility, every one of us' David Attenborough Plastic pollution is the environmental scourge of our age. And it is everywhere. Up to 12.7 million tonnes of it enter the ocean every year. That's almost a rubbish truck every minute. Hundreds of thousands of animals die every year because of it and there could be more plastic in the fish in the ocean by 2050. So what can we do? Will McCallum has been leading Greenpeace's campaign against plastic and now he shares all that he has learned to help you make a difference. And it all starts with 5 steps: 1) Go on a plastic-free shopping spree 2) Go on a plastic-free purge 3) Do some plastic-free preaching. 4) Make some plastic-free plans. 5) Start your own plastic-free campaign. This expert and accessible guide covers all ground, from the easy wins such as using a keep cup for your morning coffee, to the lesser-known hacks like using a wash bag in your washing machine to catch harmful plastic microfibres. But it will also help you be part of something bigger, explaining how to lobby successfully for impactful legislation, and how to pressure big corporations to make changes on a global scale. This is a call to arms - to join forces across the world and to end our dependence on plastic. Plastic is not going away without a fight. We need a movement made up of billions of individual acts, bringing people together from all backgrounds and all cultures, the ripples of which will be felt from the smallest village to the tallest skyscrapers. 'Plastic waste is one of the greatest environmental challenges facing the world' Theresa May
