"Delightful...I would recommend it to anybody...."

This video shows children teaching grown-ups to recycle. A 12 year old girl's curiosity leads her to challenge her mother's disposal habits. This innocent conflict denies their garbage man his familiar load of cans, bottles, plastic and paper. Soon all of Tinka's young neighbors contribute to the act. They prevent any reluctant parent from tossing what can be reused or recycled. Their trip to the recycling center is filled with meaning.

In the words of children, spiced with lively music and colorful illustrations, viewers hear how plants and animals everywhere benefit from simple habits we all can adopt.
