Whenever we hear the word "recycle" we think of paper. Paper makes up 40% of the general waste stream and 70% of the municipal recycling stream. Of all the recycling processes, glass is the easiest to understand and one of the most engaging to watch. The technology involved is also very similar to that used in plastic and steel recycling. Both Paper Recycling and Glass Recycling productions are included on this video. They each take you on an entertaining and informative journey, showing the "grave-to-cradle" transformation of recyclables from discarded material to reformed product. Both use factory footage, animations, and a lively pace to tell a story that is clear and fun to watch. These productions do not focus on the behavioral or social aspects of recycling. Instead, they engage the viewer by first presenting fascinating technologies before moving on to the reasons for recycling. In this way, they act as an effective classroom and/or promotional tool to encourage recycling. Science and technology teachers will find these presentations useful, and both productions have been optimized for classroom and promotional uses. The two programs on this video are appropriate for 5th graders through adults. This version of Paper Recycling does not include chapters on paper packaging and factory discharge reclamation. Both productions were written by a former high school science teacher/environmentalist who wanted to provide a clear and fun answer to a common question: "What happens to recyclables after they leave the recycling bin?"moreless
