The plastic island

“I wanted to write about the plastic pollution in the oceans from the perspective of a little girl. Proper environmental education in the early childhood will encourage children to explore nature. That way they will develop positive feelings towards the natural environment. I think this is one of the best approaches against climate change and degradation of the environment.
Aurea, the main character in my story, is a nine year old girl and very curious. She is not very happy about all the plastic garbage that is lying on the beach or floating on the sea surface. She is stubborn and forms an initiative. With the support of some adults she raises the concern about plastic pollution in her community. Altogether they try to revert the situation.”
