WHAT TO READ NON-FICTION
Lucy Siegle Trapeze
A COUPLE of weeks ago we featured a book on the evils of plastic, but one can never be told enough to join the war against it. Enough plastic is thrown away every year to circle the world four times. At the current rate, pieces of plastic will outnumber fish in the ocean by 2050. Plastic flows into our lives from every direction, and most of it is not recycled. Instead, it is incinerated or ends up in a landfill, where it will sit for hundreds of years, or enters the world’s seas where it fragments into tiny pieces. The author says we need to turn our anger and emotion into action, starting by making a big dent in our own enormous consumption.
