'Once, plastic was the miracle material. Now it's the monster. We all need to cut down our plastic consumption
A book about how to reduce plastic waste has been shrink-wrapped in single-use plastic by a distributor.
Author Martin Dorey called the decision by a US distributor an "absolute shambles".
"It undoes all our hard work and proves once again that we are using plastic with our eyes closed," he said on Instagram.
"We toiled hard on this," said Mr Dorey, from Cornwall.
"We worked with the printer to make it one of the most environmentally friendly books this year. ...more
And none of it is difficult or overly demanding. I've incorporated much of this into my life over the last few weeks and I urge you to do the same because more people really need to. Without wanting to go on a full environmentalist rant, cutting plastic consumption is SO important for the future of our planet because every piece of plastic we purchase will still be here in 1000 years.

I don't use plastic bags, I don’t use plastic toothbrushes or wet wipes or get a coffee to go in a disposable cup. Because everyone who’s ever sp ...more

It’s short and sweet with key statistics that force you to open your eyes to the issue at hand.
2 minutes is seriously nothing and if everyone did their bit of collecting plastic litter from the beaches, parks, streets and even found alternatives to plastic we could actually save our planet.
As a simple one, we need to reduce first and refuse what we do not need. Unnecessary plastic is the main issue - veggies wrapped, toothpaste boxes etc..
The book contains stats about plastic, explains the recycling signs and has a check list of acti ...more
