How is Plastic Recycled? Teach Your Students About the Recycling Process

As we continue to learn about the importance of recycling and reducing waste, we must also educate our students about the process of recycling materials, especially plastic. By teaching our students about the process of recycling plastic, we can help them understand the value of reducing waste and protecting our environment.

Recycling plastic is a complex process that involves multiple steps, including collection, sorting, cleaning and melting. Presenting students with this information in an engaging way can help them learn about the importance of recycling.
