Why Should I Recycle?:
This all-encompassing presentation covers: the decomposition rates of common pieces of garbage, there is no such thing as away, benefits of recycling, our worldwide plastic addiction, and what can and cannot be recycled.
A global perspective concerning garbage, and how specifically Windsor/Essex schools are contributing to the problem, and what can be done to combat the trend.
Kids/Adults have to choose any three out of ten actions presented and incorporate them into their lifestyle. The actions are simple but have a huge positive impact on the state of our environment. This is a great presentation to celebrate Earth Day!
