Every primary school across Cardiff is to receive an illustrated book to help them reduce their carbon footprint.
‘Max, Bell and Casper Save the World’ follows Max the dog, Bell the cat and Casper the chicken as three superheroes, as they describe the small actions that everyone can take to tackle climate change and reduce their carbon footprint.
It is the work of 2009 Climate Change Champion, Anna Surridge, who wrote and illustrated the book.
A copy of the bilingual book is being distributed to every primary school in Cardiff, and an electronic version is also available to download from the Wales Carbon Footprint website.
The Environment Minister, Jane Davidson said: “The Climate Change Champions have a huge role to play in spreading climate change messages to their friends, families and communities.
"Anna’s book provides a clear and engaging explanation of how simple actions around water, energy and transport can really make a difference and help Wales to reduce its carbon footprint."
