CAN (NL): SucSeed releases children's book series on hydroponics and more

SucSeed began by bringing vegetable growing into homes and classrooms, but a new idea has now sprung up in the literary world with its own sustainable superhero book series.

After a year in the making, Seed-EO Emily Bland and her team have released a children's book series aimed at helping kids become more aware of actions they can take to tackle issues surrounding clean energy, climate action, poverty, and more.

So far, the company has released two books and an activity book. It introduced 17 superheroes. The plan is to have a book centered around characters inspired by the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals. SucSeed partnered with more than 1,500 classrooms on its hydroponics system, and there was an interest in more content.

"We've also done our best to make them as diverse and inclusive. So often, some things that might have been looked at as a disability actually become part of their superpower and how they get to make a better world for us all," said Bland.

The first book is based around a character called Rori and deals with responsible consumption and production. "Her journey includes composting, going to a thrift store, supporting a local farmer, and then actually looking at ugly produce," Bland explained.
