Beth Terry, author of “Plastic Free: How I Kicked the Plastic Habit and How you Can Too,” will give presentations and sign books on San Juan, Orcas, and Lopez Islands on April 26, 27, and 28.

In 2007, Terry, an accountant, began an experiment to see if she could live without acquiring any new plastic. Since then, she has reduced her plastic waste to 2 percent of the national average. In her talk, she will share personal stories and practical steps we can take to reduce our use of plastics. Although she has a day job as an accountant, she has dedicated her life to changing the way that others think about plastics.

Learn how you can reduce your plastic use at one of the following events:

• April 26, 7 p.m., Friday Harbor, San Juan Island Grange

• April 27, 4 p.m., Eastsound, Emmanuel Episcopal Church

• April 28, 5:30 p.m., Lopez Island, Woodman Hall.
