Car bans in Mexico City. Oxygen bars in Beijing. Genetically modified "Frankenstein" food almost everywhere. "Dirty Planet" gives you the low-down on the most pressing of the Earth's pollution problems and tells you exactly who is to blame - industry and governments around the world. But don't despair! You can make a real difference with the big clean-up, and this book tells you how. Featuring accounts of work young women have done to help save the planet - from working with Surfers Against Sewage in Cornwall to creating a bullfrog sanctuary in South Africa - and with easy, practical tips to make your home, school and neighbourhood more green and influence your local council and government, "Dirty Planet" aims to help make the Earth a better place.
