            Discover the key facts about waste and how we can produce less to help protect our planet. Waste management is an issue humans have encountered throughout history. We can learn a lot about the past by looking at rubbish that was buried in early rubbish dumps, called middens. This... book covers the different types of garbage, how it is dealt with, and the problems that occur because of rubbish. This is a timely entry into the award-winning DKfindout! series. It highlights some of the key global concerns, such as space waste, the problem of plastic, growing landfills, and fast fashion. It also looks at what is being done worldwide to help manage waste better, from renewable energy to eco homes. Positive suggestions are made for trying eco-friendly swaps for single-use plastic items, wasting less food, and converting trash into treasure. This book is thought-provoking as it gets the reader to ask themselves if they really need to purchase an item and if they do buy something, to consider where it will end up after it's been used. A key way to prevent creating trash is to avoid consuming so much.

            Plastic is everywhere - from the deepest canyons in the ocean to the frozen Arctic tundra. 12.7 million tonnes of plastic are entering the ocean every year, killing over 1 million seabirds and 100,000 marine mammals; by 2050 there is likely to be more plastic in the ocean than fi...sh by weight. Plastic pollution is the environmental scourge of our age, but how can you make a difference?This book offers a handy guide for what we can do in our own homes, communities and workplaces to start bringing about the end of our plastic dependent age. It covers all ground, from easy wins such as using a reusable keep cup for your morning coffee, to lesser-known hacks like fixing a filter to your washing machine to catch some of the mircofibres released from your clothes (microfibers are responsible for up to 30% of plastic in the ocean). But it will also help you to be a part of big changes, offering insights into how to lobby for impactful legislation and how to put pressure on big corporations to reduce the use of plastic on a global scale. Packed with the latest research, useful tips, and anecdotes from scientists in the field and success stories from local communities round the world - this is an essential overview of why we should all be working together no matter where we are in the world to reduce the amount of plastic being produced.
