Summary
Plastic is everywhere - from the deepest canyons in the ocean to the frozen Arctic tundra. 12.7 million tonnes of plastic are entering the ocean every year, killing over 1 million seabirds and 100,000 marine mammals; by 2020 there is likely to be more plastic in the ocean than fish by weight. Plastic pollution is the environmental scourge of our age, but how can you make a difference? This book offers a handy guide for what we can do in our own homes, communities and workplaces to start bringing about the end of our plastic dependent age. It covers all ground, from easy wins such as using a reusable keep cup for your morning coffee, to lesser-known hacks like fixing a filter to your washing machine to catch some of the mircofibres released from your clothes (microfibres are responsible for up to 30% of plastic in the ocean). But it will also help you to be a part of big changes, offering insights into how to lobby for impactful legislation and how to put pressure on big corporations to reduce the use of plastic on a global scale. Packed with the latest research, useful tips, and anecdotes from scientists in the field and success stories from local communities round the world - this is an essential overview of why we should all be working together no matter where we are in the world to reduce the amount of plastic being produced
