The Earth Needs a Break from Plastic
by Jaime Hilditch

“The Earth Needs a Break from Plastic,” the first in a series of books educating young people about global issues. This edition focuses on plastic; a useful but dangerous material. The book offers alternative materials that children can use instead of plastic. Paper cut-outs and collected plastics were used to form the book’s illustrations. All products used were environmentally friendly, including paper scraps and cut-offs.

Jaime Hilditch completed her Bachelor of Design in 2019, and most recently, graduated with a Master of Inclusive Design from OCAD University in 2021. She's passionate about mixing words and imagery to spread meaningful messages and to inspire others to think differently. She's always been environmentally conscious, but more so over the past few years; she is adjusting her lifestyle accordingly.

This story was inspired by a conversation overheard on Jaime's travels back home from work. Two people sat behind her discussing the wastefulness of single-use plastics and brainstorming possible alternatives.
