When Sylvia Seal and her saltwater sidekicks discover a patch of plastic trash disguised as a bountiful buffet, they declare a state of emergency in Blueberry Bay!
The finned and feathered friends enlist the help of local children and explain how single-use litter “starts on the land and ends up in the sea – now the ocean is chokin’ on plastic debris.”
Blueberry Bay teaches children about the problem of plastic pollution in oceans, and suggests simple swaps we can all make on a daily basis to help save the sea.
