How to Give up Plastic is an accessible guide to the changes we can all make, both small and large, to rid our lives of disposable plastic and clean up the world’s oceans.

It takes 450 years for a plastic bottle to fully biodegrade, and there are roughly 12.7 million tons of plastic entering the ocean each year. At our current pace, by the year 2050 there could be more plastic in the oceans than fish, by weight. These are alarming figures, but plastic pollution is an environmental crisis with a solution we can all contribute to. 

How to Give Up Plastic is a straightforward guide to eliminating plastic from your life. Going room by room through your home and workplace, Greenpeace activist Will McCallum teaches you how to spot disposable plastic items and find plastic-free, sustainable alternatives to each one. From carrying a reusable straw, to catching microfibers when you wash your clothes and throwing plastic-free parties, you’ll learn new and intuitive ways to reduce plastic waste. Armed with a wealth of facts about global plastic consumption and anecdotes from activists fighting plastic around the world, you’ll also learn how to advocate to businesses and leaders in your community and across the country to commit to eliminating disposable plastics for good.
