This zippy introduction to reducing waste includes facts about how much trash Americans produce and how that can be changed.
Oh no! The unthinkable has happened. So much garbage has piled up in the vacant lot that’s home to a group of bugs that revolting rats are moving in and taking over. Luckily recycling day is almost here. Volunteers swoop in to tidy up this neighborhood eyesore. As they take the ant’s old bottle and the grasshopper’s cardboard box, the kids explain the processes of recycling paper, glass, plastic, and metal as well as how to compost. They even have tips on recycling electronics and making items such as fabrics, books, and toys available for reuse.
