Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "Between industry and everyday consumption, the amount of pollution produced can be overwhelming. These titles in the Searchlight Books: What Can We Do about Pollution? series succinctly explain how different types of pollution are created, how they affect humans and the environment, and how ordinary citizens can reduce pollution. Household Waste identifies four categories of household waste, including plastic, food, cleaning products, and electronics, and emphasizes how recycling reduces pollution from these products. Accompanied by numerous crisp photos, charts, and graphs, these interrelated books conclude with suggestions for manufacturers and individuals to eliminate waste and pollution.--Leeper, Angela Copyright 2016 Booklist"
