How to Give Up Plastic by Will McCallum
Around 12.7 million tonnes of plastic are entering the ocean every year, killing over 1 million seabirds and 100,000 marine mammals. By 2050 there could 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 accessible guide, written by the campaigner at the forefront of the anti-plastic movement, will help you make the small changes that make a big difference, from buying a reusable coffee cup to running a clean-up at your local park or beach.
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. This is a call to arms - to join forces across the world and to end our dependence on plastic.
This accessible guide will help you make the small changes that make a big difference, including:
- Using a wash bag to catch plastic microfibers
- Replacing your regular shampoo with bar shampoo
- How to throw a plastic-free birthday party
- How to lobby your supermarket to remove unnecessary packaging
Plastic is not going away without a fight. This is a call to arms - to join forces across the world and end our dependence on plastic.

Will McCallum has been at the heart of the anti-plastics movement for the past three years, in his role as Head of Oceans at Greenpeace UK. He regularly meets with the government and companies to implore them to help tackle the plastic crisis. He set up and is leading the global Greenpeace campaign to create one of the world’s largest protected area in the Antarctic Ocean. He recently spent a month on a boat in Antarctica with his team, investigating whether plastic is reaching the most remote region on the planet. He is a keen long-distance runner and regularly goes sea kayaking to explore the UK coast. He credits his love of nature and the outdoors to his grandparents, Doctor Doolittle and David Attenborough’s nature documentaries.+ Read more - Show less
