About the Author:Kate Nelson is also known as the Plastic-Free Mermaid.
'Becoming AWARE of the TONS of plastic in my life was a massive wake up call. I was contributing to the garbage dump in the precious sea that I loved so much. It has taken me years. It has been an organic, natural, humbling journey full of learning. The reason I have been able to sustain such a drastic shift, is because of the incredible results of eliminating plastic from my life. By abstaining from things packaged in plastic, I make my own. This causes me to hand select fresh ingredients, stock up my bulk spices in the pantry, blend and experiment just to my liking. All of this attention and care takes a bit more time, but there are no surprise chemicals and wouldn't you know, it makes my life richer.'
