About this title


Presents an overview of recycling processes and describes how recycled plastic, paper, fibers, and other materials can be used to create all kinds of new products.

From School Library Journal:

Gr 5-8--Three titles that describe success stories of environmental activists. Guardians highlights global efforts to save an array of animals including raptors, elephants, tigers, and rhinoceroses. Projects mounted by school groups are mentioned, as are the legal efforts for wildlife preservation legislation. Kids looks at school-aged youngsters who have taken a leadership role on various environmental issues. Wetland preservation, saving the California freshwater shrimp, preventing dumping into a stream, and planting trees are some of the ventures mentioned, almost all of which are child created and run. Reference is made to national and worldwide organizations, e.g., KAP (Kids Against Pollution) and Children's Earth Fund, under whose umbrella smaller local efforts operate. Recycling provides an overview of how recycling works and enlightens readers about unique ideas--especially those created by kids--for new products made from old or discarded ones. Examples include using old yellow pages as bedding for cows and a company that recycles obsolete maps into stationery. In all three books, yellow boxes at the end of each two-to-three page chapter provide readers with addresses, phone numbers, and Internet sites to contact for further information. Average-quality, full-color photographs appear throughout. The texts are clear, concise, and certainly inspiring. Useful for assignments and for recreational reading.
