Juice Boxes

Elementary

Description

In this video, a boy named Brad is quizzed about a "secret weapon" that is virtually indestructible and made of a high-tech composite resistant to heat and light. Brad is surprised to learn that the "weapon" is an ordinary juice box. Brad then learns that one billion juice boxes are thrown out every year; he avoids contributing to the billion of juice boxes that end up in landfills by drinking his juice from a reusable bottle.
