What a Waste!

This environmental book will teach keen young ecologists about our actions affect planet Earth. Discover shocking facts about the waste we produce and where it goes. Did you know that every single plastic toothbrush ever made still exists? Or that there’s a floating mass of rubbish larger than the USA drifting around the Pacific Ocean? It’s not all bad news though. As well as explaining where we’re going wrong, What a Waste shows what we’re doing right. This book is available from The National Trust

A Planet Full of Plastic

Our world is drowning in plastic, and it’s a big problem. Award-winning author-illustrator Neal Layton is here to explain where plastic comes from, why it doesn’t biodegrade, and why that’s dangerous for animals and humans alike. But he’s also full of ideas for how you can help! From giving up straws in juice cartons to recycling all we can and taking part in a beach clean, A Planet Full of Plastic will get young readers excited about how they can make a difference to keep Planet Earth happy. Again from The National Trust.

Somebody Swallowed Stanley!

We love Somebody Swallowed Stanley. A great book from The National Trust to get your child not only reading but into understanding pollution. Everybody has a taste for Stanley – and the other ocean creatures just keep mistaking him for a delicious treat – but this is no ordinary jellyfish. Most jellyfish have dangly-gangly tentacles, but Stanley has two handles… Because Stanley is a plastic bag! A beautifully illustrated picture book with a powerful message about plastic pollution from environmental expert Sarah Roberts. An effective way to introduce children to the issues of plastic in our oceans.

How To Give Up Plastic

A book to help life -How to give up plastic – ‘We have a responsibility, every one of us’ David Attenborough. How to give up plastic! – Part of our sustainable, reusable range from UK charities this book is a must have for anyone interested in making a difference to our planet.
Around 12.7 million tonnes of plastic are entering the ocean every year, killing over 1 million seabirds and 100,000 marine mammals. By 2050 there could be more plastic in the ocean than fish by weight. Plastic pollution is the environmental scourge of our age, but how can YOU make a difference? We love this book from Oxfam.

Don’t just get reading this World Book Day, get reading about the World!
