Turning the Tide on Plastic: How Humanity (And You) Can Make Our Globe Clean Again by Lucy Siegle

Regular price £8.99 £8.99 Sale

Journalist, broadcaster and eco lifestyle expert Lucy Siegle provides a powerful call to arms to end the plastic pandemic along with the tools we need to make decisive change.

It is a clear-eyed, authoritative and accessible guide to help us to take decisive and effective personal action.

In this book you will:
  • Learn more than 8 million tonnes of plastic enter the oceans each year (15-51 trillion pieces).

  • Hear how without big action, at the current rate, pieces of plastic will outnumber fish in the ocean by 2050.

  • Read about the realities of why the recycling system across the UK is deeply flawed, and why we need to see it as a last resort.

  • Gain the tools to reduce your plastic footprint, by using Lucy's 'reduce, rethink, refill, refuse' approach. If only 12 of us did this we could potentially ditch 3K-15K single items of plastic in a year.

One of our definitive collection of books on Maritime Interest here at the National Maritime Museum.
