Plastic Purge: How to Use Less Plastic, Eat Better, Keep Toxins Out of Your Body, and Help Save the Sea Turtles!

Plastic Purge: How to Use Less Plastic, Eat Better, Keep Toxins Out of Your Body, and Help Save the Sea Turtles! - Michael SanClements For the first chapter or two or three, I was worried that this was going to be a book "preaching to the choir." It stands to reason the majority of the people who pick up this kind of book are the kind who already care and are trying to do the right thing for themselves and the environment. And while that's probably true, there is *much* to learn, as I soon discovered.

There's a quote on the back of the book that sums the book up so well, I'm going to re-quote it here:
"Even as a conscientious consumer, obsessive recycler, and environmental advocate, it wasn't until I read 'Plastic Purge' that I realized how little I knew about the ubiquity and consequences of plastics in my life..." -- Aron Ralston

Because of this book, I will be modifying some of my future buying habits.
