A fascinating look at what happens to materials that are recycled. Follow an item such as a shampoo bottle on its journey from pickup, through sorting at a recycling plant, processing into flakes and conversion into pellets, and manufacturing to become something else, even another shampoo bottle. Try playing the Super Sorter game to see if you can sort materials correctly and earn money to buy more equipment for your factory. There are also resources such as posters and a video for building a recycling campaign in your own community or school.
