Planeteer AlertsEdit


Captain Planet: Many of the things we throw away can be used again! That's called recycling.
Linka: The bottles in our trash can be turned into windows.
Kwame: And old papers into new books.
Gaia: The more things we recycle, the fewer of Earth's precious resources we use up, and the more beautiful it stays.
Captain Planet: Together, we can make a difference! Recycle – the power is yours!
