The film
Waste disposal is brought into question when a boy creates a strange substance with his chemistry kit. How will he get rid of it? He decides to dump the blob in a nearby stream. But waste cannot simply disappear. The blob enters the water cycle and the larger ecosystem. This illustrates the necessity of advance planning for disposal.

A boy makes a decision about how to dispose of a green glob he has concocted. What will happen if he dumps it into a stream? Where does water come from and where does it go? This film illustrates the water cycle and raises many questions about environmental responsibility and the consequences of our decisions. Film without words.
