Eco-Cycle’s ZERO WASTE series is a weekly webcast, bringing you one lesson every Friday (starting on April 24th) about recycling, composting, reducing waste, and more—along with activities for the whole family!
These short and informative video lessons are accompanied by a variety of age-appropriate activities for you and your family that will help integrate the week’s lesson into your life—like doing a waste audit at home, recipes and DIYs for commonly-packaged foods and products to help you avoid plastic packaging, and viewing documentaries for an in-depth look into a topic.
Here’s the deal… We have one planet, but if everyone consumed resources like we do here in the U.S., we would need 5 planets' worth of resources to keep up! Clearly that math doesn't add up -- our consumption is not sustainable. To maintain the value of the resources that went into making products – so we can get more in line with the limits of our one planet – we need to recycle as much as we can. Watch this week’s video lesson about the benefits of recycling – how much energy is saved, how much water is conserved, how many jobs are created, and more!
After watching this week’s video lesson, challenge yourself further by doing one of the following activities:
Activity for Younger Kids: Recycling Mazes Activity
Activity for Older Kids: Recycling True or False and Guessing Game
Activity for Teens and Adults: Energy Savings from Recycling MATH CHALLENGE
