Marcal Manufacturing, Elmwood Park, N.J., USA, reports that it is extending its commitment to the environment with the launch of new classroom resources to teach young people about paper recycling. Marcal is offering free lesson plans  that "provide teachers with the resources they need to not only educate their students about the importance of saving the environment but to also empower them to make eco-conscious decisions in their daily lives," Marcal says.

The four age-appropriate lesson plans Marcal has developed can be used for elementary, middle, and high school students. The curriculum includes:

  • Hands-on environmental activities, projects, and games to educate and encourage recycling, reduction, and reuse of waste materials
  • Background information highlighting facts about waste, deforestation, recycling, and climate change
  • Interactive discussion guides with suggested environmental topics
  • Recommended reading material and additional online resources.

"Teaching sustainability is an indispensable tool for ensuring that the future of our planet will be preserved," says Tim Spring, CEO of Marcal. "We have created lesson plans that teachers can easily integrate into their classrooms. We want to provide students with a fun and informative way to understand the importance of saving the environment."
