My name is Marcus or ‘no mates’ as some children at school have labelled me, and I live in the beautiful country of New Zealand, where the water surrounds us and sports of all sorts are enjoyed.

I had got so used to having no friends that the day I finally found one was special, and slightly slightly embarrassing. Also, it was the day I learned shocking lessons about planet Earth which made having friends to share them with all the more important. Soon we were introduced to MestNed, a company that was having a big impact on the environment. When we discovered what they were really up to, my friends and I decided we had to do something about it! Only trouble was, we were up against one of the most powerful companies in the world and we were just children.

Winning seemed as likely as my dog, Muffin, flying to the moon!

On my own, I wouldn’t have even tried… Now, I had friends, well, that made all the difference. Even so, we knew it wouldn’t be easy.
