A Practical Guide to Kicking Your Plastic Addiction!
A practical guide to kicking your plastic addiction came about when Beth Terry was recovering from surgery. She read an article about the huge amount of plastic polluting our oceans. And that’s how she came to write a practical guide to kicking your plastic addiction.
Beth writes this book with good humour. In her quirky way she writes with humour. On the other hand she tells us how horrified she was when she saw pictures of dead fish having eaten plastic.
Plastic of all kinds, thrown carelessly in rivers and canals, and then washed out to sea. Waste that we humans never gave a thought to when we threw it away. From then on Beth gradually got rid of all the plastic in her house. And she shows us how we too can all make different choices.
We really don’t have to be concerned about those choices anymore because there’s a big range of alternatives. Glass, Metal, Ceramics and Steel to mention just a few.

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. I have emptied a very deep drawer in my kitchen that was full of every kind of plastic container, and I have replaced all with glass, stainless steel and any other safe containers that I come across, I believe that children are intelligent enough to learn how 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.
This is an invaluable book for all concerned with the dangers of plastic.
