The average county in America produces enough waste in a single day to cover a football field with two feet of compressed trash. We all know that recycling is good for the planet, but do we actually know about the real impact of the waste we create every day?

Join football player Mike and cheerleader Elisa for a typical day at school. Learn what these high school students really think about recycling and see how students are making a real difference on their campus as well as at home. Elisa and Mike will give you a first hand look behind the scenes as you follow them on a trip to their local landfill to see the effects of mass consumption and waste production.
