Science & technology: general interest (Children's

A powerful look at the plastic pollution crisis

Plastic Planet offers young readers the perfect, non-alarmist introduction to Earth's plastic crisis

Plastic pollution is now found in every environment on Earth, from the deepest oceans to the driest deserts and the most remote ice sheets.

Plastic Planet offers readers aged 8 and up a look at plastic through the ages, exploring what it is, how it's made and how we have become so dependent on it in a single-use, disposable world. It highlights the social inequality of plastic pollution and explores how plastic has become a widespread and dangerous pollutant that is inextricably linked to climate change.

The book looks ahead to possible solutions to our plastic crisis, from global changes such as changing people's mindsets, to innovations such as compostable plastics, to practical solutions such as recycling and bottle return schemes.
