Wednesday, 13 February 2019 - 6:30pm to 7:30pm

Join Northern Beaches locals Clara Williams Roldan and Louise Williams as they discuss their new release Quitting Plastic.

From plastic bag bans to the rise of Keep Cups, reducing plastic consumption is a huge trend at the moment – the ABC’s War on Waste really kicked off the phenomenon for millions of Australians. Louise and Clara have drawn on their own experience quitting plastic to create an accessible comprehensive guide for anyone looking for alternatives, and have answered all the tricky questions from 'Is this going to be expensive?’, ‘Do I have to give up crackers?' and 'What about my bin liner?’.

Louise Williams is Walkley-award winning journalist with a lifelong passion for environmental protection, serving on the Northern Beaches Council’s Waste and Recovery Strategic Reference Group and co-founding the Baringa Bush Community Garden.

Her daughter, Clara Williams Roldan is a young policy and legislative advisor in NSW Parliament. Witnessing parliament at work has convinced Clara that lots of individual actions which may seem small at the time can drive important changes in our lives.
