Abstract or Summary

Do you know how long it takes for a plastic bag to decompose? What’s a closed landfill?... How can worms help us in our fight against ever increasing piles of rubbish? In this book you can learn about what types of rubbish take the longest times to decompose, what we can do to lessen the amount of rubbish we produce, how to recycle effectively and how to make a worm farm. Guided by Kevin the Cockroach, children learn about all aspects of rubbish creation and removal in New Zealand. The Book contains lots of activities such as how to make a rubbish audit at home or in the classroom, how to make a worm bin (and why you'd want to), and how to reduce rubbish. There's also a quiz for kids to try out after they've read the book.
