Blue Planet Society members took a field trip to the recycling plant in Phoenix on Thursday, Dec. 4. The recycling plant is an organization that helps keep the community clean by collecting trash that can be reused. For example, they separate cans, water bottles and other reusable trash. The students were taught the importance of recycling and how this can make a change in the community. Trash is a big issue for the environment. Members were really impacted with what they saw and how so much trash is sent to the landfills.
