“There is a an old saying,”it’s an ill wind that blows nobody good” and so it was, that Beth Terry came to write about her topic, which is also a bugbear of mine and has been for a very long time, and now that more definite evidence has come to light it’s of much more concern to me, especially because I have young grandchildren, so I’m delighted that Beth has written this book. I sincerely hope that everyone will read it, especially those with young children and anyone who suffers with asthma or any respiratory problems.”
Like many people, Beth Terry didn’t think an individual could have much impact on the environment. But while laid up after surgery, she read an article about the staggering amount of plastic polluting the oceans and decided then and there to kick her habit. Now she wants to teach you how you can too. In her quirky and humorous style-well known to the readers of her popular blog, Terry provides personal anecdotes, stats about the environmental and health problems related to this material, and personal solutions and tips on how to limit your usage.
Terry includes handy lists and charts for easy reference, ways to get involved in larger community actions, and profiles of individuals and Heroes, who have gone beyond personal solutions to create a change on a larger scale.Terry’s book also includes chapters on letting go of eco-guilt, strategies for coping with overwhelming problems, and ways to relate to other people who aren’t as far along on this healthier path. Both a practical guide and the story of a personal journey from helplessness to empowerment, her book is a must-read for anyone concerned about the ongoing health and happiness of themselves, their children, and the planet.

Those who are a lot further along the path will find plenty to further challenge themselves. Everyone will be inspired by the interviews with some amazing activists and entrepreneurs who are going beyond personal changes to have an even greater impact in the world.
“I feel so strongly about the dangers of plastic and especially heating food in a plastic container in a microwave oven, particularly with our very young, that I have emptied a very deep drawer in my kitchen that was full of every kind of plastic container, and I am gradually replacing it with glass, stainless steel and any other safe containers that I come across, I believe that children can learn to handle glass with care. No grandchild of mine will ever eat or drink anything from a plastic container again, nor play with a plastic toy at their grandparents house.”
