Plastic-Free: How I Kicked the Plastic Habit and How You Can Too by Beth Terry
Plastic-Free: How I Kicked the Plastic Habit and How You Can Too

Thank you Terry, for sharing my passion and for broadcasting the message that it can be done by changing habits and being conscientious.

Maybe something targeted toward the smaller businesses for ideas --a resource for packaging materials; distribution and stepping up their businesses without falling into the large manufacturing pitfalls.
