A Plastic Bottle’s Journey and a Plastic Maze Activity Sheet!

You may know that single-use plastics are bad for the environment and can harm wildlife, but do you know what really happens to the plastic bottle you throw away? 

To learn about the life cycle of a plastic bottle, watch TED-Ed “What really happens to the plastic you throw away”. Emma Bryce traces the life cycles of three different plastic bottles, shedding light on the dangers these disposables present to our world. 

The bottle with the least environmental impact was the one that was recycled! Now, help Bernie and Sammy send a plastic bottle to the recycling truck with our Plastic Maze. 

Bernie’s Escape – Plastic Maze

Were you able to find the path to get the plastic bottle to the recycling truck? A reflective question to follow: if you could go back in time and prevent the discovery of plastic, would you?
