Waste Free Oceans Launches Children's book on Marine Litter

"Plastian the Little Fish" raises awareness on plastic in our seas

Waste Free Oceans is very pleased to present “Plastian The Little Fish” – a children’s book educating the young generation on the issue of marine litter. The book, written by Nicole Intemann, is ideal for kids ages 5-10 and printed on eco-friendly recycled paper.

The colorful pages depict the story of a brother and sister who embark on a sea adventure and become concerned by the amount of marine litter in the water. With the help of Plastian and his animal friends, they construct a trawl to collect the floating debris.

The book is a useful instrument for those looking for educational material on ocean plastic and can be used in schools and communities involved in beach cleanups projects. Readers are encouraged to submit their ideas to WFO on how to best address the issue of marine litter, with an award for the best suggestions.

WFO would like to warmly thank Enplast, the Linpac Group and the British Plastics Federation for enabling the publication of this book. With this English translation we take one step closer to our goal of helping Plastian reach children all around the world, and hope to introduce Dutch and Italian translations of Plastian within the near future.

The book is available in both digital and paper-back versions, and is an ideal gift for the holiday season!

Order the digital version for only $7.99 here and the paper-back version for €12.95 directly via WFO’s website here.
