This true story is almost hard to believe as the Garbage Barge travels up and down the coast trying to find someone who will take the load of garbage it’s carrying. It will really make you think reducing your garbage footprint. As a big fan of the work of Red Nose Studio, I also enjoy the illustrations in this story.
