‘Reduce and Recycle’ Classroom Suite
Many people don’t know that litter and pollution from our freeways and roads can wind up in the storm drains around town. Litter causes big problems when it flows down the gutter! While storm drains are meant to carry rain water, any litter that ends up in them can flow right into stormwater basins, canals, and rivers. It can also hurt the wildlife living in and around the water, so be sure to pick up litter and dispose of it properly. Help keep our water clean and our environment safe.
