The Magic of Recycling

Teaching kids about the responsibility of recycling can be tricky, that’s where Tim Wenk steps in. Wenk performs fun tricks to teach elementary school students how to recycle, what to recycle, and why it’s important to recycle.

The kids of Kaunakakai Elementary, pictured above, cracked up their classmates with skits and magic tricks, making recyclable materials disappear and recycled bottles reappear.

Catherine Merkel, a fifth grader at Kaunakakai, said she and her parents already recycle at home, but still learned a lot about trash.
“You should always recycle all things, because too much trash in the landfill would fill the whole land,” she said.

The show, called ‘The Magic of Recycling,’ was also performed at Kilohana Elementary and Aka`ula School last week.
