Description

A BBC RADIO 4 BOOK OF THE WEEK
A 2023 BOOK OF THE YEAR IN THE GUARDIAN AND THE NEW YORKER

Waste is everywhere. It’s clogging our rivers and littering our streets. The Pacific Ocean contains a great garbage patch three times the size of France.

Our junk is even orbiting the earth. No wonder there are microplastics in our bloodstreams. Waste, a problem we’ve ignored for too long, is now a global crisis – and it’s getting worse.

From the landfills of New Delhi, to the second-hand clothing markets of Ghana and the overflowing sewers of Britain, join Oliver Franklin-Wallis as he reveals the dirty truth about the global waste industry. In this eye-opening and ultimately hopeful book, he meets some of the heroic people trying to make a difference and explains precisely how we can create a better, less wasteful world.
