Description:
Ever wondered how to build a global environmental movement? Rebecca Prince-Ruiz started with a small group of people and one simple idea.

In June 2011 environmental and waste management consultant Rebecca Prince-Ruiz had a lightbulb moment. She was so shocked by the amount of plastic her family in Western Australia was recycling that she decided to see if they could go plastic-free the following month. Plastic Free July was born and they were joined by 40 friends and colleagues. Since then the movement has grown dramatically and in 2019 more than 120
million people in 170 countries joined the Plastic Free July challenge.

Plastic Free shares stories – both inspiring and heartbreaking – of plastic solutions and pollution worldwide, and meets the scientists, educators, activists, policy makers and everyday people making a difference around the globe. The book tells the inspiring story of how one of the world’s most influential environmental campaigns, with its vision of a world without plastic waste, began with one very simple idea.
