All sorts of things can be recycled, and turned into something new. Did you know recycled drinks cans can be used to make cars, for example, or that old drinks bottles can be turned into fleece for jackets and coats?!
In Putting the Planet First: Reduce, Reuse, Recycle, discover how people around the world are working all the time to find new ways to re-use and recycle materials, and reduce waste. Learn too, what you can do to help the environment, and about small changes you can make that will have a real impact.
It's a fascinating introduction to the positive changes people are making to try and live more sustainably, and will inspire children to think creatively about how they can put the planet first!
