Plastic-free Living with Beth Terry
What is your plastic footprint? Take a walk through your house and notice how much plastic has infused our way of life. From plastic-packaged food in the kitchen to toothbrushes and shampoo in the bathroom, from the carpet on the floor to the clothes in our closets, and all the gadgets we use each day, our world is full of plastic.
Although some plastics make our lives better, much of it is a problem — polluting our oceans and beaches and harming our health with toxic chemicals. But what can one person do to be part of the solution? Join us for an evening of inspiring stories and practical tips about ways to reduce plastic in your home and on the planet. Author Beth Terry will share her journey from self-confessed plastic addict to empowered plastic-free activist and explain why we can’t just recycle our way out of this mess. Beth Terry’s book, Plastic-Free: How I Kicked the Plastic Habit and How You Can Too, will be available for purchase and signing at the event.
