The good news is there is a growing awareness that we must do something to reverse the trend of thoughtless discarded waste. The same issue of Sierra Magazine highlights schools and universities from coast to coast with innovative programs, courses and infrastructure to heal the planet.
Little children like my grandchildren are also talking about picking up trash that they see discarded and recycling and reusing. I love seeing how important they think that it is because they are the future. In my next book, At the Beach, Lae Lae and her friend Timmy take a trip to the beach and, while they enjoy playing in the ocean, they also learn about recycling and cleaning the beach.
