Did you know?

Over 500,000 children around the UK in libraries, schools and preschools have been using the Wild Tribe Heroes books to learn about the problem of ocean plastics. Through our Books Into Schools project, local businesses, individuals, organisations, councils, parents and grandparents can help inspire thousands of children across their community to get involved and take action.

Each school receives an Educational Pack of the three books plus teaching ideas and digital resources and the aim is to target an entire region at the same time. The result of children reading the books in schools is remarkable. They are organising litter picks and beach cleans, setting up recycling stations and importantly, using their persuasive writing skills to write to local business asking them to stop their use of single use plastic.  Between these thousands of children they will have links to every single business in the community and so the children become the teachers, inspiring their families,schools and wider business communities to make the changes our environment so desperately needs us to make. This is creating cleaner and healthier towns and environments, coastal regions and cities.

To find out more about how you, your school or your business can help sponsor the books into your local community please click here.

Together, we can all be the change we want to see.
