What a waste: Rubbish, recycling and protecting our planet


This environmental book will teach young ecologists how our actions affect the Earth, the good and the bad. From pollution and litter to renewable energy and plastic recycling.

Discover shocking facts about the waste we produce and where it goes. For example, did you know that every single plastic toothbrush ever made still exists?

What a Waste also shows what we're doing right to combat the problems and how different countries are implementing new schemes to make a positive impact.

Find out what you can do. Every small change helps our planet.
