"Plastic Free" Book Event with Author Beth Terry, March 15th at Florey's!

Florey's Books welcomes Bay Area author Beth Terry as she discusses her book "Plastic Free: How I Kicked the Plastic Habit and How You Ca Too".

***Saturday, March 15th, 2-4pm***

See the interview with her (and our previous guest Cynthia Kaufman) on Wavelength, hosted by Ian Butler here:

About the Book:

Like many people, Beth Terry didn’t think an individual could have much impact on the environment. But while laid up after surgery, she read an article about the staggering amount of plastic polluting the oceans and decided then and there to kick her plastic habit. Now she wants to teach you how you can too. In her quirky and humorous style—well known to the readers of her popular blog, My Plastic-Free Life—Terry provides personal anecdotes, stats about the environmental and health problems related to plastic, and personal solutions and tips on how to limit your plastic footprint.

Terry includes handy lists and charts for easy reference, ways to get involved in larger community actions, and profiles of individuals— Plastic-Free Heroes—who have gone beyond personal solutions to create a change on a larger scale. Plastic-Free also includes chapters on letting go of eco-guilt, strategies for coping with overwhelming problems, and ways to relate to other people who aren’t as far along on the plastic-free path. Both a practical guide and the story of a personal journey from helplessness to empowerment, Plastic-Free is a must-read for anyone concerned about the ongoing health and happiness of themselves, their children, and the planet.

About the Author:

Beth Terry began her crusade against plastic overconsumption in 2007 when she started her blog, My Plastic-Free Life ( ) which is now the leading blog on plastic-free living, combining useful information about plastic-free alternatives with personal stories and the occasional rant. A founding member of the Plastic Pollution Coalition, Terry has spearheaded a successful citizen action campaign and gives presentations on plastic-free living and why, despite what some critics assert, our personal actions do make a difference. When she's not out fighting plastic pollution, Terry spends her time with her husband and two rascally kitties.


We hope to see you!
