Every year, enough plastic is thrown away to circle the world 4 times and it is estimated that if decisive action is not taken, pieces of plastic will outnumber fish in the ocean by 2050.
This event, alongside the acclaimed accompanying book, is a call to arms to end the plastic pandemic from journalist, broadcaster and eco expert, Lucy Siegle.
Well known for her enthusiasm and playful authority, now she shares her latest campaign – the desperate need for us to face the challenge of plastic and the damage it does to our world – and shares the ideas of a UN Environment Assembly panel she recently chaired. Lucy also has a weekly prime time TV slot is dedicated to battling waste plastic (The One Show, BBC1) and a decade of experience as the Observer and Guardian’s Ethical Living columnist.
Join us here at Storyhouse to hear how we can all help to Turn the Tide on Plastic and move towards making our globe clean again.
There will be a book signing following the event.
‘.. a clear-sighted and immensely useful overview of the problems caused by plastic and the potential solutions.’ — Sunday Times
