Get your students excited about recycling and give them an opportunity to pitch in—in a big way! Have a “Recycling Day” at your school to learn about recycling and kick off participation in the Repreve Recycle Rally Competition, a massive plastic bottle collection drive. Your class can work with others in your school to win tickets for students to attend Marvel Universe Live!

Your Recycling Day can be a whole day, a half-day, or even just an hour or two—this program contains loads of material to help you customize your own plan. And because they support Common Core State Standards and Next Generation Science Standards for grades K–5, you can easily implement these ideas in the classroom.

The program contains: 

  • A primer on recycling education
  • Science-themed experiments that create aha! moments in class to reinforce the theme of transformation
  • Lessons about recycling that raise awareness about sustainable practices
  • Information on how to join the Repreve Recycle Rally Competition
