Our hero Michael Recycle is green and keen to save the Earth. While he is not actually green, he is aware of green issues. He comes to Earth to educate us on how to recycle, encouraging us to look after our planet and to take responsibility for our own rubbish. The picture on the front cover shows our hero Michael Recycle flying across the sky. On his head, he wears a colander it looks a bit like a baseball cap. He's got one arm bent with his hand on his hip and the other is stretched out in front of him. He has a joyful smile and rosy cheeks as he flies through the sky with a loud WHOOSH! He wears a tight fitting green body suit and cape. On his chest is a bottle cap with his initials M.R. on it. He looks just like a super hero or a caped crusader.
