The 10 Easy Principles or alternatively.
Applying the tools of environmental management
to reduce the negative environmental impacts
associated with the use of plastic
About The Book
The underlying principles of lifecycle thinking, waste minimisation and design for the environment are tried and tested environmental disciplines which have remained relatively unchanged over the years. These disciplines are not specific to the issues of plastic, and can be applied to any resource management issue, so although the title of this book refers to Plastic Thinking – it really means flexible thinking about any environmental concern. It would be possible to apply these environmental principles to different material options or priority issues such as the use of fossil fuels, other non-renewable resources or conflict minerals.
“The purpose of this book is not to declare war on plastic, but to help the reader to decide on when plastic is the optimal choice. There are many properties of plastic that mean it will continue to be an essential material in our 21st century lives, we simply need to be more thoughtful in our use and treatment of this precious resource”. Dr Dawn Pope.
