PLASTIC A Toxic Love Story

by | Read by Pam Ward

Contemporary Culture • 10.25 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2011

Journalist Susan Freinkel focuses on the double edge of eight commonly used products made from plastic, “the slippery skin of modern life.” For instance, the first IV medical bags saved lives, but chemical compounds used to manufacture them were deadly. Pam Ward voices this far-reaching book with the same zeal expressed by Frienkel, who on one occasion follows a “recycled” plastic bottle to China because, she learns, it was cheaper to freight it there than truck it to a San Francisco recycling station. Ward’s professional voice communicates seriousness but also prevents data fatigue by deftly recounting Freinkel’s humorous anecdotes, some of which are sprinkled with sarcasm.
