Eco-Cycle’s ZERO WASTE series is a weekly webcast, bringing you one lesson every Friday (starting April 24th) on 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.
WEEK 1: WHERE DOES OUR STUFF COME FROM?
Everything we have—our homes, clothes, phones, cars—comes from the Earth. Watch this week’s video lesson to learn about some of the most common materials we use – glass, plastic, aluminum, and paper—where they come from, how each product is made, where it goes after we use it, and the impact it has on the planet.
After watching this week’s video lesson, challenge yourself further by doing one of the following activities:
Activity for Younger Kids: “Where does it come from?” worksheet
Activity for Older Kids: Stages of Materials Worksheet
Bonus Activity: Go deep! Watch a recording of our Earth Day Training, "The Real Footprint of Our Stuff", an in-depth look into the upstream impacts of products we use daily.
