What A Waste: Rubbish, Recycling, and Protecting our Planet

Did you know that every single plastic toothbrush ever made still exists? Or that there is a floating mass of rubbish larger than the USA drifting around the Pacific Ocean?

It is not all bad news though. While this is a knowledge book that explains where we are going wrong, What a Waste also shows what we are getting right! Discover plans to save our seas. How countries are implementing green projects worldwide, and how to turn waste into something useful. The tiniest everyday changes can make all the difference to ensure our beautiful planet stays lush and teeming with life.

It is a lively kid’s educational book with fabulous illustrations and fun facts about the world broken into easy to digest bite-sized bits. Each page can be looked at in short bursts or longer reads for more detail, making it a great children’s book for a range of age groups.

Our Review Panel says...

This is an informative book with a high visual appeal. It covers different aspects of reducing waste, with a large emphasis on plastics. Information is presented through diagrams, accessible text, illustrations and photographs. A highly recommendable non-fiction book that will challenge KS2 pupils to make small lifestyle changes that collectively can make a big impact on our planet.
