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 

"An important book at an important time. This book helps illustrate the irrefutable crisis we are in. But it's not all doom and gloom; it is a book about hope and possibility. This is an uplifting guide to living more gently with less impact and with less plastic. This book provides real, actionable advice, step by step, room by room! Each and every one of us can make a difference, and this book shows how we can live more and with less plastic."Jeff Delkin, Founder of Bambu

"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

"Plastic pollution isn't an abstract concept. It can become very personal, very fast. Sandra's response was to push back on the tide of plastics in her life, searching for solutions to move her from feeling angry and powerless to feeling empowered. As a pioneer, social entrepreneur, and activist, Sandra focuses on inspiring and growing the now global Goodbye Plastic movement. Sandra provides many insights and easy-to-take steps to easily move from feeling assaulted to joyful about joining the global community working to solve this very big problem." —Sharon Rowe, Founder and CEO, Eco-Bags Products

"This is such a practical guide to reducing plastic at home and on the move. After 12 years of tackling plastic pollution in our ocean, I know that the solutions start on land... and this book will show you how to make personal changes that can make a difference." Emily Penn, Founder of eXXpedition and SHiFT

Wonderful Guide on Moving Away from Plastics!

A wonderful resource and practical guide in how to reduce and remove plastic from our lives! Sandra's tone is unpretentious, more like a friend offering helpful advice based on knowledge from her personal journey. Sandra's tips and advice on simple swap outs really helped me make some small but significant changes in my life, especially in some areas that I was struggling to see how to move away from plastic. It doesn't take an iron will or a lot of money to move away from plastic, just some practical thinking and sound advice! Thank you Sandra!!

An enjoyable, easy read that left me feeling like I had a friend helping me room by room.

I loved this book. The tone is engaging and it reads like a best friend telling you about their journey to be plastic-free. Full of tips and bits of information, the book is easy to scan, share with kids, or simply go room by room while Marie Kondo-ing. Perfect for a COVID household upgrade project! THANK YOU!
