- Ever visit a landfill? Or a recycling or composting facility? An incinerator? Elementary and middle school students can visit all of these solid waste management facilities without leaving the classroom. "Trashumentary" is a 20-minute program that features visits to each of these facilities with students asking questions to the people who work there. This video is only available on DVD with the "Eco-Jeopardy," "Earth Today" and "DHEC1: Behind the Oil Change" videos.
- "DHEC1: Behind the Oil Change " chronicles the rise, fall and redemption of an environmentally conscious high school student who is caught illegally dumping used motor oil into a storm drain. This 14-minute program is the centerpiece for the "Green Driver Project."
