The great big green book

2015

by Mary Hoffman and Ros Asquith

"Think of the future. Can you imagine our planet as beautiful as it used to be? You could be the one to help make it beautiful again, with the things you do and the ideas you have. Your planet needs YOU!" From a simple introduction to our home in Space, the authors explain what we need for life on Earth, and show the importance of the rainforests and the oceans; they stress the need to look after our planet and show how some of the things we take for granted are running out, and how we have polluted so much our planet. The action plans include saving water, saving energy, recycling, reparing, growing seasonal food, cooking fresh food, saving on packing, asking questions ... and thinking of new inventions and big ideas
