Doug The Litterbug, a children's book about litter pollution
Our over consumption of plastic is harming millions of animals worldwide and effecting thousands of people below the poverty line. With the abnormal rise of litter pollution mainly coming from single-use plastics, it is our duty to inspire new methods of packaging. We wrote Doug the Litterbug to inspire children in Laos (a country in Southeast Asia) to develop solutions that will shape history.
As Laos is an underdeveloped country, we would like to distribute this book to 800 children in multiple villages across Laos. With the incredible natural resources Laos has to offer, we believe that Laos has the power to be world leaders in the natural packaging movement. However, we first need to share the importance of eco-friendly packaging.
For children between 3 and 9 years old, Doug the Litterbug teaches children about litter pollution and encourages them to think of new eco-friendly ways of packaging to reduce plastic waste. The beautifully illustrated book also aims to strengthen reading skills through our carefully selected fonts, and create international-minded thinkers by exposing them to two languages: English and Lao (a Southeast Asia language spoken only in the remote region of Laos).
Doug the Litterbug is a story about a little bug who struggles with plastic pollution. As we follow him around the city, we learn that his problem is bigger than we could imagine. With a push from his teacher, Doug decides that he needs to create an invention to reduce litter. The story ends on a cliffhanger with a page for children to creatively think of their own inventions.
