Summary

Describes different recycling programs

How do we end up eating plastic bags?
What is "e-waste"?
What happens to our old mobile phones and computers?

The amount of waste produced by human activity increases globally year after year. This book examines how effective we really are at recycling these huge amounts of unwanted materials. It discusses issues such as the dangers of recycling toxic or hazardous waste, the potential of "blackwater" treatment and the use of new, sustainable building materials, such as guadua bamboo. But are we doing enough to help our planet? What do you think?

With a significant emphasis on persuasive text, this series tackles fascinating topics related to Earth's ecosystems and natural resources. Presented in a question-and-answer format and demonstrating different points of view, the text encourages critical thinking, discussion and debate about environmental issues that are relevant both locally and worldwide.
