Zero Waste: How One Community Is Leading a World Recycling Revolution

In stock

In this fifth installment in Allan Drummond’s picture book sequence about green living, a village in Japan takes a stand against its throwaway past and shows that it really does take a village to make sustainable change.

Kamikatsu, Japan, is known worldwide for its sanitation innovations. This small community of 1,700 people is leading the way in recycling and upcycling, and has nearly achieved its goal of zero waste. Told in Allan Drummond’s energetic, informal narrative style, this is the story of a group of citizens who dared to break out of their comfort zone and make radical change for the good of their town and the planet. Through the eyes of two children visiting their grandmother, this inspiring addition to Allan's acclaimed series about everyday communities inventing exciting new approaches to green living shows that working together for a common cause has an impact that is lasting, meaningful—and fun!
