"Plasticus Maritimus is truly a pivotal book of our time. Ana's journey to specializing on this topic mirrors many and especially youth we meet all over the world. I can't imagine a better 'field guide' will ever be made that explains the problem, offers alternatives and provides a clear call to action. Bravo Ana!"
--Adrian Midwood, Executive Director, Plastic Oceans Canada
"I loved this book for so many reasons! There are bright, colourful pictures that draw the reader in. The book is easy to understand and fun to read, but still gives very important information about this new invasive species "Plasticus martimus." I think this book should be in every class for all kids of all ages."
--Mason Vander Ploeg of Mason's Ocean, Junior Plastics Oceans Ambassador and London Drugs recycling ambassador
