EARTHECHO EXPEDITIONS: WHAT HAPPENS WHEN WE BUILD CITIES? (USA, 2013, 10 min.) Join EarthEcho Expeditions as they paddle the Anacostia River to discover how stormwater from urban centers is quietly choking our waterways. Learn how our nation's capital is taking innovative steps to restore the balance to the hydrologic cycle and go underground for a big solution for pollution. Produced by EarthEcho International.

Animated Shorts
We live in a world of stuff. These videos challenge elementary-school students to evaluate the things in their lives and the impact their choices have on the environment. Where does it come from? What is it made of? What happens to it when I throw it away? Loop Scoops is produced by WGBH Educational Foundation.
JUICE BOXES (USA, 2010, 3 min.) When Brad learns that one billion juice boxes are thrown out every year, he decides to drink from a reusable water bottle instead.
ELECTRONIC GADGETS (USA, 2010, 2 min.) After Oliver discovers that the parts in his computer game are made of titanium, gold and mercury, came from 18 countries and traveled 228,000 miles, he decides to keep the one he has instead of buying a new one.
GARBAGE (USA, 2010, 2 min.) Oliver learns the importance of recycling.
HAPPINESS STORE (USA, 2010, 2 min.) Brad, Oliver and Clementine learn that less can be more.

Discussion and activity for elementary school-age children follows both screenings.
