When a battery oozes, what can it do? Is there a difference between a glass jar breaking and a bulb breaking? Designed and published by Daily Dump, the Ooze books bring to focus the hidden side of our everyday chemical and electronic products. While all these products provide us with great services and entertainment, most of us are unaware that they can also have toxic effects. Often there is no safe way to dispose these in our homes, so they end up in mixed trash and then cause harm to the soil, water and air that we all use. When children become more aware and curious about different materials, their properties and use, they will grow up to make more informed choices and use these materials safely. The Junior Ooze book and its companion, the Senior Ooze book make the idea of toxicity more accessible to children. Product price includes a shipping cost of Rs. 55 per unit.

Why we like it
These books address the important but oft-neglected topic of environmental toxicity from e-waste in a way that’s easy and interesting for children to comprehend. They are full of activities that children can do to make understand their world better and make more informed, responsible choices.

When a battery oozes, what can it do? Is there a difference between a glass jar breaking and a bulb breaking? These books on batteries bring to focus the hidden side of our everyday chemical and electronic products. While all these products provide us with great services and entertainment, most of us are unaware that they can also have toxic effects. Often there is no safe way to dispose these in our homes, so they end up in mixed trash and then cause harm to the soil, water and air that we all use. Chemistry is all around us and when children become more aware and curious about different materials, their properties and their use, they will grow up to make more informed choices and use these materials safely. Both the Junior Ooze book and its companion, the Senior Ooze book, address the issue of toxicity of e-waste at different levels of complexity. It is like reading two versions of a Birbal story at the same time. We believe that it fosters a sense of perspective and inquiry, so necessary to understand the “complete” story. . Both the books are illustrated in different styles, again a way to encourage different ways of seeing.
This book comes with lots of activities which the child can do.
There is a sticking activity at the end of the book – the answer to which is on our website.
Designed and published by us internally.
Great gift to give.

When we started Daily Dump in 2006, our vision was to constantly re-imagine our relationship with the earth, with each other and with our urban spaces. Essentially, we are in the mindset changing business - mindsets about “waste”, about marginal livelihoods, about whose job it is to take care of “waste”, about how we can harm less, etc.

Ours is a design led company where we use design to help imagine alternative scenarios that can help change behaviour. We are mindful of looking at whole systems and understand that the context of India has its own challenges. Our objective is to reduce waste, improve material recovery, enable better livelihoods and to do this through the voluntary collective action of urban citizens.
