Recycling chart - what types of food wrappers and containers can you recycle?  This chart can be used to introduce and expose students to what materials they are able to recycle.

All too often, I notice non-recyclable items in the recycling bin here at work, and vice-versa. There are lots of different types of food containers/wrappers, and it's not easy to keep track of which ones can be recycled and which can't. Call me a hippie if you want, but it bums me out to see red plastic cups in the trash, knowing that they're all just gonna end up in a landfill. So I threw together this handy little graphic...
