In this podcast from The Friends of Auntie Litter", Mr. Grody refuses to put litter in its proper place!  A group of children witnesses the harmful effects of Mr. Grody's propensity for polluting and are inspired to join Auntie Litter's Pollution Patrol.  Enlightened by a logical, clear explanation from Auntie Litter, they discover the difference between organic and inorganic waste.  With help from Auntie Litter, the Pollution Patrol has a great time convincing Mr. Grody to Reuse, Reduce Waste, and Recycle.  In the end, each Patroller learns creative ways he or she can make a world of difference saving our land from litter.
