In this Martha Speaks interactive story, students learn how the choices we make about our trash have different consequences for our environment. A discarded soup can can end up in a landfill, whereas a reused or recycled can could become something new. When used as a part of Martha’s True Stories Buddies Program, buddy pairs engage with the interactive story, then create an Advice Column that offers ways to reuse, repurpose, or compost old things. To familiarize yourself with the program, begin by reading the Martha's True Stories Buddies Program: Overview.
