Plastic: A Toxic Love StoryPlastic: A Toxic Love Story by Susan Freinkel

My rating: 4 of 5 stars


An easy to read exploration of plastic through objects we interact with everyday. The book uses a comb, chair, Frisbee, IV bag, disposable lighter, grocery bag, soda bottle, and credit card to gradually introduce all aspects of plastic. This includes the chemicals involved, people behind breakthroughs in plastic, companies producing raw materials and finished products, impact on society and environment, and the growing greening movement around plastic. The book is filled with intriguing characters and stories and offers a balanced look at all the benefits and drawbacks of plastic.
