Nosy Crow will support sustainability app Refill to mark Climate Action Day on Saturday (30th November), after being inspired by the indie's recent book Earth Heroes.
The children's indie publisher and communications agency EDPR were inspired by the new book Earth Heroes by Lily Dyu, published by Nosy Crow in October which offers “a collection of 20 inspiring stories of people saving our world, from Sir David Attenborough and Greta Thunberg, to Yin Yuzhen and Isatou Ceesay,” the publisher said. “Accessible and timely, the book promotes the important message that every individual can make a difference and help save the planet at this time of real climate emergency.”
Nosy Crow and EDPR are calling on bookshops and libraries to list themselves as Refill Stations and "spread the word about how easy it is to reduce plastic pollution," the companies said. Refill is an app created by environmental not-for-profit City to Sea which allows people to find places to refill their reusable water bottle.
Catherine Stokes, head of UK and export sales and marketing at Nosy Crow said: “Nosy Crow is so proud to have published Earth Heroes, the ultimate gift for any aspiring climate activist. Lily Dyu truly inspires young readers to realise their own potential to create change in her 20 engaging stories of how individual people are saving the planet. Supporting Refill for Climate Action Day seemed like the perfect fit, and I hope that as many bookshops and libraries as possible will take part. At the moment, a staggering 14 million bottles are saved each year if all Refill Stations are used just twice a day.”
Climate Action Day is a worldwide movement to help reduce climate change.
