ISRI's school curriculum plans to go "Beyond the Bin," encouraging kids to know what goes on behind the scenes when they recycle. Photo: Flickr When we recycle, we often think of the next generation of Earth-dwellers that will eventually live with our waste. Many avid recyclers teach their children the importance of material reuse– but what if children without access to that education had a chance to change the world, too? That’s exactly what The Institute of Scrap Recycling Industries (ISRI) intends to provide. Partnering with The JASON Project , a program managed by the National Geographic Society that pairs students with high level scientists, ISRI plans to make recycling education part of an “age appropriate” school curriculum countrywide for grades K-4, 5-8 and 9-12.
