About the Book:
Primitives didn’t know that earth will change in a few days. They even didn’t think there would be something called Trash and they used to walk and throw their trashes on the earth. But the story doesn’t end here and maybe when the earth is full of trash, we will hear interesting stories like trashes marriage. Have you ever thought about that?
Green Nardeban is the environmental part of Nardeban books that publishes books about environment and its problems. This book is about trashes and recycling. It teaches teenagers the lifecycle of trash in nature and trashes’ damages to the environment. One of the strengths of this book is its ironic language and the type of irony used in this book.
In a part of the book we read
There are two types of trash. One group of trashes plan their journey in advance and the other, just travel without planning and go on with life. They don’t care about their destination. The third group are the trashes that never travel and so we don’t bring them in our classifications.
