This Children’s Book Is Made Of Recycled Plastic

By Desirée Kaplan

According to a report by the Ellen MacArthur Foundation and the World Economic Forum, there will be more pieces of plastic in the sea than fish by 2050. Much of the problem stems from the general overuse and improper disposal of plastic products or packaging. While some companies are finding creative ways to turn ocean plastic into water bottle sleeves or even boats, one group is hoping to put the issue right into the hands of future generations.  

Charity Waste Free Oceans and tech company Teijin have teamed up to create the world's first children's book made entirely from plastic taken from the ocean. The book, How Pippa Became The Queen of the Ocean, was designed to help kids think about the issue of plastic waste through the book’s story and the physical book itself.
