Blending fascinating factoids, wicked humour and bright illustrations, this book is both educational and fun.


‘Someone wisely remarked that "Now there is no place called AWAY where we can throw things anymore!" Waste is one of THE most important issues facing everyone. Caren Trafford's book is factually spot on and really fun.

Robyn Williams, AM, ABC Science Show.

‘This is a great book; it helped me understand recycling and the different ways there are to reduce waste. I loved the pictures, they’re mad.’
