About Be Plastic Clever
Join teenage activists Amy and Ella Meek on their mission to rid the world of single-use plastics in this practical book, perfect for budding eco-warriors.
Be Plastic Clever will teach young activists about the dangers of plastic pollution and climate change, but also to help them find their voice. Amy and Ella want their book to help young readers shout about the issues they are passionate about and inspire them to become young activists in their own right.
Amy and Ella founded Kids Against Plastic with the goal of ridding UK supermarkets of single-use plastic bottles. Their campaign has grown and grown - together they've picked up more than 60,000 pieces of single-use plastic litter, performed their own TedX talk, and gathered together a crack team of kids across the UK to help them tackle the problem. They've spoken at the Houses of Parliament and the UN, and created the #BePlasticClever campaign to encourage schools, businesses, and festivals to be mindful of their plastic use. Oh, and they also juggle this with going to school!
With an incredible foreword by wildlife presenter Steve Backshall, diary entries from Amy and Ella detailing their journey, and plenty of tips on what you can do to help, it's the ultimate guide to ridding the world of single-use plastics.
