One Oakland Woman’s Crusade to Live Life with Less Plastic

Oakland resident Beth Terry started her blog, Fake Plastic Fish, a few years ago when she came across Chris Jordan’s photos of dead seabirds with their bellies full of plastic pieces. Terry vowed to reduce her consumption of plastic, and to document her progress on her blog. Terry says, “Living with less plastic is really not as hard as it seems, but our awareness of disposable plastic in our lives can be transformative.” If you are serious about minimizing your plastic consumption – whether your motivation is the protection of wildlife, waterways, and seafood, or the minimization of waste and your use of petroleum products—Fake Plastic Fish is a great resource and a fun read.
