Rethink the way you recycle | Reduce, Reuse, Rethink
Rethinking the way you recycle is the focus of a CBC News series: Reduce, Reuse and Rethink. It explores why Canadian communities are at a turning point when it comes to recycling and exploring ways to do it better. Much of the reason is because of a decision by China to crack down on foreign waste. About half of the world's recyclables were being sent to China, but China stopped importing them. Now, many Canadian municipalities are stockpiling materials because they have nowhere to send them.

REDUCE REUSE RECYCLE - Waste Reduction - Steve Trash Science
This is an EARLY VERSION of STEVE TRASH SCIENCE. We wrote, shot, edited it, to show PROOF OF CONCEPT. This means, you have to "make it" before people can truly understand what you're GONNA MAKE. We learned a lot from shooting this episode. Frankly... we got better the more we worked on it. As we got closer to the PBS TV version of the show (check you local listings for times), we changed quite a few things, but I think this episode stands up. Remember... this is kinda-like a FIRST DRAFT... so keep that in mind when watching. In this episode of STEVE TRASH SCIENCE, we explore the magic words Reduce Reuse Recycle. Why is recycling a good idea? How can we reduce the amount of garbage (or waste) we make? Why does Steve sometimes wear a big-huge-diaper? Why is garbage a problem for the planet's environment? What things can we do to prevent pollution? STEAM and STEM correlated, this video is fun and funny. Primarily focused on grades 1-4, this video was created to supplement "in classroom" waste reduction and pollution learning. Enjoy. Don't forget to use the magic words... Reduce Reuse Recycle. By the way, the audio on this video is a little "wonky", but my friends and I are working to make the audio better on future Steve Trash Science Episodes. We didn't realize I sounded so "small" until we were finished shooting. Just pretend we're hanging out in really a big room together and it sounds just right!

Interesting - How Long Trash Takes To Decompose
The Decomposition of Waste in Landfills - How long it takes various types of garbage to decompose is important. The rate of decomposition can depend on landfill conditions. Plastic products are very common in our modern life. According to estimates, every year we use approximately 1.6 million barrels of oil just for producing plastic water bottles. Plastic waste is one of many types of wastes that take too long to decompose. Normally, plastic items can take up to 1000 years to decompose in landfills. But plastic bags we use in our everyday life take 10-1000 years to decompose, while plastic bottles can take 450 years or more. Disposable Diapers Just in the United States alone, every year more than 18 billion disposable diapers are thrown away. These disposable diapers take approximately 250-500 years to decompose in landfills, thus underscoring the efforts of programs offering diaper and absorbent hygiene product recycling. Aluminum Cans Every minute, every day, more than 120,000 aluminum cans are recycled only in America. But, at the same time, in every three-month period, enough aluminum cans are thrown away in America that can rebuild the entire American commercial air fleet. Aluminum cans take 80-200 years in landfills to get completely decomposed. Glass Normally, glass is very easy to recycle mainly for the fact that glass is made of sand. Simply breaking down the glass and melting it, we can produce new glass. But the shocking fact is that if glass is thrown away in landfills, it takes million years to decompose. And according to some sources, it doesn’t decompose at all. Paper Waste Based on volume, paper is the largest element in American landfills. Normally, it takes two to six weeks in a landfill to get completely decomposed. If we recycle paper items, we can easily save a lot of landfill space, while reducing the energy and virgin material requirements of making non-recycled paper. Food Waste By weight, food waste is the largest waste item in American landfills. The time taken for food waste decomposing depends on the type of food. Normally, an orange peel takes 6 months but an apple core or a banana peel takes around one month to decompose. An important component of food recycling is having the right container to deal with it. Different sources have different information on the actual time various waste items take to decompose in landfills.

What is Deforestation? | One Tree Planted
Deforestation is a huge environmental challenge. But what is deforestation? What drives it, and how we can preserve and restore the world's forests. ✅ Subscribe to One Tree Planted: https://bit.ly/2IsCtqc Simply put, #deforestation is the clearing of wide areas of trees by cutting trees down. Our planet’s forests are some of the most valuable resources we have. They provide us with clean air, a source of food, construction material, and much more. Even more importantly, #forests are a major line of defense against climate change. A single tree can absorb up to 48 pounds of carbon dioxide from the atmosphere each year - which makes them the most effective CO2 scrubbing machines we have. Despite this, forests are being systematically eliminated all across the world - a process we know as deforestation. Agriculture for palm oil, soy, and cattle, along with logging for wood and fuel are the top causes of deforestation. But all is not lost, there is definitely a way to create sustainable economic growth without destroying more of the planet's few remaining intact forests. By implementing sensible approaches to energy, land use, and agriculture, we can greatly reduce deforestation and create a future full of biodiversity. Beyond that, #reforestation (plating trees) is vital to counterbalance the deforestation that has occurred historically. Only through planting native #trees can we restore our damaged landscapes to lush and healthy forests. Our video, Deforestation Explained, aims to inform you about deforestation and how we can limit the negative effects of cutting trees down. We also highlight how, through planting trees and restoring forests, we can reverse the negative ecological impacts of deforestation and set our environment back on the right track. This video works well as a learning tool for high school students and would work well for a teacher searching "What is Deforestation KS2" 🌲 About One Tree Planted: 🌳 One Tree Planted is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization and we plant trees!

Reduce, Reuse and Recycle, to enjoy a better life | Educational Video for Kids.
The three Rs Hello I am the Earth, yup the very planet you live on. There are three words which start with the letter R which I love. They are: Reduce, reuse and recycle. Do you know why I love them so much? Because they are almost magical words. Together they can make all living things as well as myself be happier. I said that they are “almost” magical because without your help it won't work, they need all of you children in order to do the trick. Each and every one of you are the real 3Rs magicians, those three words which can change the world. Do you want to know how? Yes? Well let's find out. The first R is for reduce. If you think about it, there are many things you don’t need. When you go to the supermarket, I am sure you could take your own canvas bags instead of using disposable ones given to you. This way you will be reducing the amount of plastic which is very contaminating. And I am sure that you don’t need to print out so many documents or photos, nor leave the lights, television or computer on when you are not using them. If you remember this, you will be reducing the amount of paper being used as well as energy, and in turn will be helping reduce the contamination. And these are just a few examples. I am sure you can think of many more different ways to reduce what you are using or creating unnecessary waste. The following question will help you with this task: Do I really need this or is this just a whim? The second R is for recycling. Now it is easier than ever to recycle things we don’t need any more so that they can be reused. Near your home you can find places, like the recycling station and containers for cans, plastic, paper or organic waste. They each have their specific colors to make them easier. By using them, you will avoid contaminating nature, the rivers and seas as well as the atmosphere, which is the air we breathe. And finally we have the third R, which refers to reuse. How many things do you think we can reuse again and again instead of throwing them away? Let´s see…a piece of paper that has only one side printed on it, a carton box, a plastic bottle…you think now. With just a bit of imagination, I am sure you will come up with many more exciting and fun new uses for them. And remember: if you apply the 3Rs rule, you will make me a much cleaner planet, with less contamination and where we all can enjoy a better life. Because as you know…children can make the world of difference.
