'Not for me, please! I choose to act green' is a wonderful, rhyming children's book which introduces the topics of sustainability, recycling, and acting green to children. The story is told through the eyes of Luke, a smart and caring young boy. After seeing first-hand the damage caused to the environment and animals due to trash and waste, he changes his ways to think and act green. He believes he can have a big impact on the world around him and invites his readers to join him!
Using his helpful phrase, "Not for me, please", Luke shares relatable examples of how he acts green. These include refusing straws, conserving electricity and water, reducing plastic use, bringing his on reusable bottle, etc. He introduces the concept of 'Recycle, Reduce, and Reuse' to children and role models how you can ignite your inner super-hero and take control of your actions to protect the environment.
