'I'm going plastic free next month, who wants to join me?'

When Rebecca Prince-Ruiz asked her colleagues this question in 2011, she had no idea that less than a decade later it would inspire a global movement of 250 million people in 177 countries to reduce their plastic use. Plastic Free tells the incredible story of how a simple community initiative grew into one of the world's most successful environmental movements. It also shares tips from people around the world who have taken on the Plastic Free July challenge and significantly reduced their waste.

Plastic Free is a book about positive change and reminds us that small actions can make a huge impact, one step - and piece of plastic - at a time.

'Not just an inspiring story and a practical resource, this is evidence that grassroots actions by ordinary individuals and communities can make a material difference to the most wicked of environmental and social problems. Hats off.' - Tim Winton

'Some people feel overwhelmed by the environmental state of affairs and wait for politicians or manufacturers to change; others, like Rebecca Prince-Ruiz, take matters into their own hands, starting with their own lives ...Use this book to be inspired, or better, use it as a template to change the world in your own way!' - Bea Johnson, author of Zero Waste Home

'The more time I spend at sea, the more I realise the solutions start on land. This book will guide you on that journey to making global change for the ocean from your doorstep.' - Emily Penn, ocean advocate, skipper and co-founder of eXXpedition

'Plastic Free July inspires me to step up my commitment to reducing single-use plastic in my daily life and on tour.' - Jack Johnson, musician and Plastic Free Foundation ambassador
