Waste is things we do not need or want. People throw away things all the time, from food and paper to computers and cars. But where can it all go? We are running out of places to dump our mountains of rubbish, and we are polluting the Earth and its air with our toxic wastes. This book explains all the different kinds of waste, and how we can dispose of them more safely. You can learn about the three 'Rs' of rubbish: Reduce, Re-use and Recycle - which help to cut down the amount of waste produced in the first place. Discover what you can do to help improve your environment today. Throughout, 'Fact Panels' give stark statistics to highlight the problems and 'Try This!' panels give the reader simple activities which they can do to investigate the issues. These books are also weblinked which means that the reader is directed to specially selected websites where they can find out more.
