Recycled Planet explains to young readers how essential recycling is in today’s world

Recycling is part of everyday life today. From food scraps to mobile phones, recycling gives many materials a new lease of life and prevents them from polluting our planet, as well as saving energy.

Recycled Planet explores the world of recycling, looking at what we recycle, how it is collected and separated and what happens during the recycling process. It also looks at new forms of recycling, from deposit schemes to repurposing, and assesses some innovations designed to make recycling more global and efficient. Simple activities encourage readers to take part in recycling themselves and to aim to recycle even more!

Following on from Plastic Planet and Hot Planet, Recycled Planet will feature the same blend of illustrations and photos and a striking cover, and is written by the award-winning science author Anna Claybourne.

Aimed at readers aged 9 plus.
