About The Story: A child wakes up to noise in the garden which turns out to be an Ibis bird foraging for food, but why isn’t the Ibis living in its natural habitat? The child starts on an adventure to find out why and learns about recycling along the way, and ends up helping the bin chicken.
This storybook is written in collaboration with RecycleSmart a Sydney based recycling company that are trying to spread the word about what can be recycled and where. When people think of recycling it is usually in relation to plastic bottles, cans, glass and paper. However, there are many more items than those that can be recycled you just need to find out where that is. In Australia, each state has different rules around recycling and what goes in each household bin, but there are options for recycling items like batteries, ink cartridges, electrical items and more that don’t cost you anything but make a BIG impact on the environment. In this world of mass consumerism and throwaway society, it is important to buy to last, and if you do need to bin it to do it right.
The last page of the Bin Chicken storybook gives you the details of where you can go to find out where to recycle items in Australia, and the story will inspire you to look at things differently and not just assume by putting it in the bin that it is the right thing to do.
For children who care about the environment!
