About Event

Give to educate youths on Recycling & Waste Management, through creative play/puppet show.

We need your help!  In honor of the Year of the Rooster, we want to have as many youth groups around the world perform the "Uncle Roo - Recycling Rooster" play or puppet show, and make it the "Year of the Recycling Rooster."  Once this is performed by a group, we can upload their video of the performance on our Uncle Roo Youtube Channel for others to see and learn from.

“Uncle Roo - the Recycling Rooster” is a puppet show or play which can be adopted by any community, anywhere in the world, as a story to help teach, educate, inspire, and empower the youth of our world to understand the importance of recycling and proper waste management, especially in rural areas. Included here is a new audio book version for 3-6 year olds, thanks to Unite Us.  This version is in English, but there will be other languages soon.  http://www.uniteforliteracy.com/unite/playground/book?BookId=1423

This play is critically powerful when using and promoting the character of Uncle Roo (a rooster), because the play/ show turns into reality the next day for the children, when the village rooster crows in the morning.  This real-life reminder, is called "Eco-Repetition," and “Recycling Roo” is the first play/show in the world to activate this incredibly important, natural tool, for the benefit of our communities. So, when played out, Uncle Roo needs to be the Hero, loud and clear, and someone that the children greatly respect.  If done correctly, the roosters in your community will help you do the reminding, every single day. It is then up to the adults in the community to fulfill the needs, curiosity and interests of the youth, to follow Uncle Roo’s messages of undertaking proper recycling and waste management in their village or neighborhood. Uncle Roo is already in Chinese, Japanese, Spanish and a Filipino language, and soon to be French.  

In order for us to engage youth groups to be part of these performances, we are inviting you to support our cause by DONATING / FUNDRAISING. So we can provide these youth groups with the play costumes, proper equipment and travel budget (if applicable) to perform and educate the communities in their surrounding villages, islands or towns.
