Earlier today, we featured an interview with Beth Terry about her book, Plastic-Free: How I Kicked the Plastic Habit and How You Can Too, and her mission to use herself as an experiment in living without plastic. But she wrote the book and started her Plastic-Free Guide both for herself–and to help others discover new ways to use less plastic.

After all, the average American creates about 4.4 pounds of garbage per day.
Flip through this round-up of tiny habits each of us can change to cut back on the garbage we generate.
