But unhappy with how much plastic she still handled in her day-to-day life, she knew she had to do more. It took years, but Kate has developed effective strategies that others can easily adopt. This inspiring and practical guide to reducing your use of plastic is packed with information, how-to's and tips to help you cook, clean, shop, wear and live plastic-free. Kate shows how to reduce your waste and live more simply and sustainably, no matter where you're starting from. With over 60 recipes--covering nutrition, bodycare, hygiene and cleaning--Kate Nelson provides the tools you need to make small personal changes that have lasting global impact.
