Millions of us consider our use of plastic a perfectly normal part of everyday life. We purchase and toss out our plastic products and packaging without giving it a second thought. But Beth Terry began thinking about it in 2007, and when she learned about the toxicity and environmental consequences she was moved to kick her plastic habit. Host Stephanie Potter interviews Beth Terry
, blogger of My Plastic Free Life
, and author of Plastic Free: How I kicked the Plastic Habit and How You Can Too
, a book described as "fun, friendly and informative."
Terry is a founding member of the Plastic Pollution Coalition and has been a leader in successful citizen action campaigns. She also gives presentations on plastic-free living and how and why our personal actions make a real difference.
