The average county in America produces enough waste in a single day to cover a football field with two feet of compressed trash. We know recycling is good for the planet, but do we actually know the real impact of the waste we create every day?
Join Mike and Elisa for a typical day at school and learn what high school students think about recycling and see how students are making a difference.
Follow Elisa and Mike on a trip to their local landfill to see the effects of mass consumption and waste production. See what happens to your recycled goods as you trace a bottle from a school recycling bin through the step-by-step process that transforms it into plastic lumber. This video illustrates the process of recycling, and inspires viewers by showing real students learning about the 3Rs: Reduce, Reuse and Recycle.
