Our oceans are amazing! They are filled with wonderful sea creatures and are essential for a healthy planet. But it's now estimated that there are more pieces of plastic in the ocean than visible stars in the Milky Way. So how can we stop plastic from our homes and cities from ending up floating in oceans far away? By becoming ocean change-makers!

Oceans of Plastic explores how ocean systems and swirling currents bring plastics together into massive ocean garbage patches. It also uncovers the floating world of the 'plastisphere' - a mini community of microbes living on ocean plastics - and explains how plastic breaks up, not down, and can even end up on your dinner plate!

Oceans of Plastic is packed with great ideas and simple changes that you can make to help our oceans. Become an ocean change-maker in your home, school or community, and inspire others to join you in protecting the future of our oceans.

Reviews for Oceans of Plastic: Understanding and Solving a Pollution Problem

In this new book for upper primary+, readers learn how ocean systems and swirling currents bring plastics together into massive ocean garbage patches. It also uncovers the floating world of the 'plastisphere' - a mini community of microbes living on ocean plastics - and explains how plastic breaks up, not down, and can even end up on their dinner plate! -- Tracey Gray * The Bottom Shelf * I enjoyed reading Oceans of Plastic very much and learned some interesting and surprising facts that blew me away. [...] The book is full of cool facts and information, but also shows how you yourself can help save the planet! [...] I think that if you are curious about nature, marine biology and how we can make a change, then this book is for you! -- Sammy * Double Helix #57 *
