n this awesome and inspiring guide, McFly bassist and environmental activist Dougie Poynter shows you how to get involved in the mission to cut out single-use plastic. Plastic is everywhere and it sucks. It fills up our oceans, endangers our wildlife and never goes away. So it's time to take action, find ways to cut down our plastic use and help protect our environment. As a lifelong supporter of environmental causes, Dougie is always on the hunt for ways to reduce and replace plastic. This book draws on his own experiences in the fight against plastic waste – the problems he's encountered and the solutions he's found. It covers the history of plastic, introduces us to some key campaigners and eco entrepreneurs, and is full of top tips. The clear and easy steps in Plastic Sucks!
