My Little Plastic Bag tells the story of a little girl, Amy, who throws a plastic bag out of the family car and it follows the plastic through the ecosystem until it comes back home in the fish that her family eats. Plastic in our water is now epidemic and one United Nations report says almost every square mile of the ocean contains 46,000 pieces of plastic and most are so small we can’t see them. This plastic is being ingested by the fish and other wildlife and this is leading to the plastic chemicals getting into our food supply.

This book is designed for children 4 to 8 to educate them on two important ecological concepts:
1. There is no away.
2. There are cycles in nature.
“It's important that children learn from an early age that plastic pollution is one of the most serious threats facing our natural world. My Little Plastic Bag helps kids understand how even a harmless action like throwing away a plastic bag can have serious consequences.”
—Diane MacEachern, Publisher,
"This book can be valuable to teach young people about the problems plastic trash creates in our aquatic environment."—Travis Graves, Lower Neuse Riverkeeper
