A great read if you are interested in learning more about the plastic crisis. Lucy does a brilliant job in unwrapping everything about plastic - from its inception and humanity’s growing dependance on it to its use and misuse. She unravels the limitations of our recycling infrastructure, the ineffectiveness of open-loop recycling systems, the economics of recycling vs. crude oil, the faulty tax system, the harmful effects of man-made synthetic fibres and how all those factors have worked together to lead us to where we are today. The second part of the book focuses on tips and strategies to reduce our daily plastic footprint. A must read!
