The Recycling Simplified Education Program contains everything you need to teach your students about recycling. You’ll find step-by-step lesson plans and supporting materials including activities, videos, student certificates, and handouts for students to bring home.

Lessons within each grade range build upon students’ understanding and help them gain greater awareness of the broader environmental, sustainability, and societal issues related to recycling and its role in conserving natural resources. The lessons can be taught as a unit or individually – whatever fits best for your students and your curriculum.
