Trash Island is an interactive book intended for ages 12 and up, aimed at exploring the current environmental crises in a personalized way. As you choose action points through the book, it is encouraged that you think about the reality of each situation. Through this book, I want children to garner interest in the natural world and sciences, acknowledge that their actions can have consequences in terms of the health of our planet, and foster prolonged curiosity toward turning thought into action. I think that we all have an inherent want to do something for this world, to leave it better than we found it, to somehow make a difference. I hope this book provides you with an idea for how to start.
