Help keep Georgia clean and green with GPB's live exploration: Reduce, Reuse, Recycle! This live virtual field trip was previously recorded on December 8, 2020. The program offers students insight into the recycling process as they explore two types of recycling centers and see how one of the world's largest carpet manufacturers repurposes plastic bottles. Students will also learn how they can reduce, reuse, and properly recycle in order to protect the environment and reduce pollution.
