Turning the Tide on Plastic


Turning the Tide on Plastic is a vital tool in the battle against Planet Plastic, as journalist, broadcaster and eco lifestyle expert Lucy Siegle delves deep into the pandemic and converts awareness into action.

By visiting beach cleans, scientific institutions and waste collectors, and interviewing policy makers, manufacturers, retailers and householders, Lucy has uncovered the devastating impact of plastic pollution. Joining the dots between our consumption and the crisis, she unwraps our habits and offers her 'Record, Replace, Refuse, Refill, Rethink' guide for change. Anybody can switch from being part of the problem to part of the solution. If only 12 of us adopt her strategies, we could ditch up to 15 000 single items of plastic a year.

A powerful call to arms coupled with practical tools to make decisive change, Turning the Tide on Plastic is the essential guide to ending the reign of problem plastic today.
