Learn about the problem of single-use plastic and what to do about it.
On his birthday, Nick challenges his friends to spend the day without using any single-use plastic. This means they bring their own cloth bags, say no thanks to plastic straws and decorate with paper streamers instead of balloons. Along the way, the kids learn what plastic is made of, how much of it surrounds us and how it's polluting our oceans and affecting the food chain. Most importantly, the five friends learn ways to use less including just saying NO!
No plastic? No problem. Readers will be primed for a No-Plastic Challenge of their own!
