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.
This video which is appropriate for kindergarten to grade four students, introduces the importance of recycling and reducing the volume of waste that goes into our landfills. Easily integrated into the social studies curriculum or as part of an Earth Day activity, such as launching a litter-less lunch program, this video can also be used to generate discussions about the role younger students can play in protecting the environment.
