An original production complete with rap lyrics and humor debuts this Saturday at Nacogdoches Public Library.
Created to educate and entertain elementary school children, “Trash Talk” is the brainchild of Keep Nacogdoches Beautiful board member Susie Lower.
“I felt like we weren’t doing enough about recycling and litter education,” Lower said. “We talked about how it would be great to get the message into the schools, but teachers are already so busy and have a tough time putting it in their curriculum.”
The 20-minute presentation was designed to get the attention of the upcoming generation about the harm litter does to the environment, she said, and the urgent need to recycle and repurpose plastics.
The group plans to offer “Trash Talk” for presentation to schools and youth organizations. Saturday’s performance takes place at 2:30 p.m. and will be followed by activities that include repurposing plastic items that would ordinarily be thrown away.
The show is free and open to the public. For more information on this program, call Lower at 936-234-2340 or the library, 936 559-2944.
