Beth Terry is a plastics-free-life live-er and crusader. She is currently in the process of getting her book published and has become an Internet sensation in the field of plastic-free living.
She wrote a really great post today, and I encourage you to visit her site and read it:
I'm again reminded that the small bit I do does make a difference - if only a small one. But it takes small starts to get the snowball building, right?
Oh ... did I mention that Patricia MacQuarrie - one of our town's esteemed aldermen and also the author of this book - put a motion to council last week to have the administration look into what it would take to go plastic free in our town? (No, I didn't mention it ... but now I have). I was invited to come since I was so involved in the "Bag It" night. I'm so pleased to be part of this process.
All but one of our councillors agreed to it.
