Get inspired reading this new book by our ECOlunchbox founder Sandra Ann Harris. It also makes a great gift! Books ship signed by the author.

If you've heard of the plastic-free lifestyle, but think you don't have time for it in your busy life, prepare to be delightfully wrong. Say Goodbye To Plastic: A Survival Guide For Plastic-Free Living shows you how, whether you're seeking to knock plastic out of your life or try a few novel eco-hacks in your kitchen, bathroom, office, or dining room.

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.

The foreword, written by Dianna Cohen, the CEO of Plastic Pollution Coalition, gives perspective to the plastic pollution movement and frames it within the current environmental and racial justice movement unfolding worldwide.

The 192-page small format hardback book ISBN 9781578268603 measures 7 by 5 inches and is 1/2 inch thick. The book, which is also available in ebook on Kindle, is uplifting and inspirational, giving the reader a can-do attitude and actionable information. It makes a great gift paired with plastic-free ECOlunchbox products for eco-friendly friends and family looking to celebrate an increasingly plastic-free lifestyle. It's published by Hatherleigh Press and distributed by Penguin Random House.

Expert Reviews

"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

Great tips for going plastic free

Say Goodbye to Plastic was an easy read with lots of simple tips for reducing plastic use. I really liked how the author weaved in her own experiences in nature and oversea travel in regards to plastic waste and what we can do about it.

Great Guide to Sustainable Living!

Make sure to check this book out!
