Length: 336 pages
In her book Plastic: A Toxic Love Story, Susan Freinkel tells the history of plastic and why we have such a complicated relationship with it. Plastic is at the same time very good for us and very bad. She illustrates this through the story of eight products, including the frisbee, the com and the IV bag. Her ultimate point is that plastic has helped society in many ways (e.g. the IV bag), but that we need to think more carefully about what we use it for and to limit the number of disposable items.
