Abstract: 

This on-line resource helps explain waste issues to new immigrants in the Twin Cities (MN). The information can be listened to and viewed on-line in English, Hmong, Arabic, and Somali.

At the end of each short video on topics like Reuse, Recycling, and Household Hazardous Products, the viewer is told that more information can be found at http://www.GreenGuardian.com.

This project is the result of a Community POWER grant.

The LaRue ESL Environmental Education Exercises were created by Charles LaRue with the financial support of the Solid Waste Management Coordinating Board in cooperation with Anoka County Integrated Waste Management.

These interactive exercises explain what happens to the garbage that we throw away. They give examples of how to reduce, reuse and recycle. They also explain household hazardous waste and how to read product labels and how to dispose of waste properly. The explanations are in English, Hmong, Arabic and Somali, and can be heard online or printed from pdf files. The exercises are all in English and can be used on line or printed out from pdf files. After using these exercises please, ask your students to pledge to reduce waste. They will get a free printable study certificate. They are available now at http://mcedservices.com/recyclex/recyclex.htm.
