We just got the revised and updated version of the book "Plastic-Free: How I Kicked the Plastic Habit and How You Can Too" by Beth Terry of My Plastic-free Life (http://myplasticfreelife.com/)​. Here's is the page dedicated to our little company. The book contains tons of tips and ideas on how to reduce plastic in everyday living. We'll be talking about it more in our newsletter in the coming weeks.

Stunningly creative and colourful, Czech artist Veronika Richterová makes plants out of polyethylene terephthalate plastic bottles. Not exactly our idea of the ideal house plant, but beautiful nonetheless.
