A Planet Full of Plastic
Neal Layton provides a guide for children in an accessible and lively format about the environmental impact of plastic and what they can do to help. He begins by inviting them to look at how many things around them are made of plastic and showing clearly why the fact that it’s not biodegradable makes it a problem. He goes on to show the effect it is having on the wildlife in the planet’s oceans. The book ends on a more positive note by describing ways it can be reused and recycled and introducing ideas being developed by scientists and engineers to combat the problems of plastic.
