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