Hannah Peck and Sarah Roberts

This little story on environmental pollution follows Stanley – who is no ordinary jellyfish but a little plastic bag that was thrown into the ocean. Foregrounding the dangers for sea creatures who want to take a bite of Stanley, this story makes clear that plastic bags do not belong in the sea.

As the story touches upon ecocritical topics an interdisciplinary teaching project with Biology is possible.
