LOOP SCOOPS from Annie Leonard, WGBH, and PBS!

LOOPS SCOOPS

LOOP SCOOPS are short, funny videos to get kids thinking about the stuff in their lives and what this stuff can do to the environment. Each SCOOP tells the story of something kids use or see everyday — a juice box, a magazine, an electronic gadget, a glass of juice, a pile of garbage. Our goal is to get kids thinking in new ways and asking new questions, like: What is this made of? Where did it come from? Who made it? What happens when I throw it away?
