As a plastic pollution activist and entrepreneur, Harris invites us in her book, which is part memoir, part inspirational ode to the ocean and packed with how-to tips to say goodbye to plastic. Opportunities abound in every room of our homes to simplify our lives by re-thinking our wasteful habits -- we need to learn to recognize them.

"What Sandra Harris has accomplished in this book is to provide the practical guidance we all need to transform consumerism to align with our values about how we treat each other and the world around us. We all know that a shift must happen, but we do not always know how to get there. Say Goodbye to Plastic shows us how." —Marcus Eriksen, Executive Director, 5 Gyres Institute
"In a world filled with plastic, it's hard to imagine how you can say goodbye to the stuff. But, Sandra Harris shows it's not only possible—these days, it's surprisingly easy to bid adieu to much of the plastic we use, thanks to a now bountiful market of plastic-free goods. As founder of her own plastics-alternative company, ECOlunchbox, Harris is a knowledgeable, practical, and compassionate guide, showing room by room how to de-plasticize your home and life." —Susan Freinkel, Author of Plastic: A Toxic Love Story
"Sandra Ann Harris' uplifting plastic-free memoir and how-to guide makes saying goodbye to plastic an exciting eco adventure full of discovery. "Say Goodbye to Plastic" absolves us of paralyzing guilt and offers easy practical tips that will add up to make a huge difference for our ocean environment. Her book encourages us to think "what one thing" can each of us do to eliminate plastic pollution. Refreshingly missing from this book are harsh judgements and insistence on an unobtainable, over-the-top strict, zero-waste lifestyle in which an entire family only produces one jar of waste every year. While inspiring, such lofty goals can sometimes lead to eco guilt, which can lead to inaction. We can all do at least one thing easily!" —Jo Fleming, Executive Director, California Green Business Network
