Explore the Cycle of Recycling

Explore the Cycle is a series of short animated videos that explain the cycle of recycling consumer goods. Explore the Cycle explains, in very clear language, how paper, plastic, metal, and glass are recycled. Each video segment can be downloaded or shared via the embed code provided by Explore the Cycle.


Applications for Education
Explore the Cycle is accessible enough for use in elementary schools, but also provides content that could be used with high school students. One way that teachers can use the video is to have students watch the video then make an evaluation of their school's recycling program.
