Recycling is Fun!
Children discover their power to save the world.
Produced by Stuart Perkin
Three captivating young children explore the three Rs of recycling -- reduce, recycle, reuse. To educate themselves, they visit a landfill, a recycling center, and their local supermarket to find out what they can do to help with our solid waste crisis.
"Aptly visualizes the solid-waste crisis for young children." Booklist
At the landfill they see what the crisis looks (and smells) like, and what could be removed from the waste stream.
The recycling center lets them separate and prepare recyclables to replace raw materials (saving landfill space, energy and trees) and even pays them for some of the recyclables they collected.
Visiting the grocery store they have a treasure hunt, looking for new products made from, or packaged in, recycled paper or plastic containers.
They discover their own power to recycle and chose what they buy, for the benefit of their world.
