Publisher's Synopsis

Key Selling Points Litter is a global problem that injures or kills wildlife and affects biodiversity. Land litter contributes to the problem of plastics and other waste in the ocean. Children with pets, kids on farms and those who love nature and wildlife will want to know how to help put a stop to litter. This book shows kids that littering is a problem with solutions. It demonstrates that they can be active in tackling the problem and that their consumer choices and trash disposal habits matter. Spotlights the effects of litter on specific animals, such as pets and farm animals, marine wildlife, birds and land mammals. Litter is tied to global warming and climate change. For example, burning litter to "get rid of it" turns land pollution into air pollution, including the release of greenhouse gases. The author is an award-winning author of more than 20 nonfiction books for kids with a focus on STEM topics.
