Indonesia is the number 2 country that produces the most waste in the world. It is recorded that there are approximately 332 tons of waste produced by Indonesia per day. In addition to the nature of plastic that is difficult to decompose, plastic waste in Indonesia is caused by a lack of awareness and knowledge about the dangers and impacts of plastic waste. The research method used is a descriptive qualitative method. The strategy used is to design a story book that is used as a story telling to explain the impact of plastic waste on children. This storybook, entitled Erika and Trash, uses interesting and imaginative stories that children love. In addition, in this book there are also games that can be done while playing with children. The primary media chosen were story books for children and the supporting media consisted of posters, keychains, acrylic stands, pins. This story book will be used as a way for parents to tell stories to children about the danger of plastic trash.
