“In Ashley Ivanov’s ebook From Pristine to Earth, Marlo, a middle school student and resident of the planet Pristine, is sent to Earth to explore its environment for a school project. With no garbage in Pristine, you can imagine his surprise upon arriving in a landfill. Through a series of adventures and misadventures, Marlo learns of the impact of plastics on the environment. The book also mentions issues such as the greenhouse effect and its impact on humans and the physical environments. We follow Marlo as he works with his new-found friends to change the attitudes of people, governments and industries. This book is geared towards middle school students, has some humorous sections and would provide a fun alternative to traditional teachings on these issues. – (EJ)”
