The funny, imaginative, award-winning story of a boy who tries to save the world through recycling.Every year in the developed world, an average person throws away 45 kgs of plastic, two trees worth of paper, 160 cans and 107 bottles. Colin takes his recycling school project to heart and tries to convert his own family first, with great difficulty, before he tries to save the world. He becomes a self-appointed eco-warrior and comes up against his sister, who delivers junk mail, his mother, who sells real estate and hang-glides for de-stressing and his father who spends a lot of time in the garage. Colin becomes involved with the Roseview Rubbish Rescue Centre and the character who runs it. They along with others, organise a campaign to protest selling off the centre for development.
This is a well-told story with many hilarious episodes that will delight young readers.
The text is playful and imaginative, lighthearted and funny, but also intelligent and informative. It won the Junior Fiction category of the NZ Post Children's Book Awards in 2002.
