Lake Park - There will be no more tossing cans into the trash for students at Lake Park Elementary. "We should always recycle, because it will save our environment," said Kasey Phelps, Third Grader.

A few magic tricks and disappearing acts show them how everyday trash is transformed into new products. "The children are the future, and they're going to end up with all this trash if they don't do something about it now," said Timothy Wenk, Magician.

Magician Timothy Wenk travels to schools around the country teaching kids how old paper, plastic, and aluminum can protect their future. "Hopefully after this, they'll take it home to Mom and Dad and get the whole family recycling," said Wenk.

And the lessons learned today will help save their tomorrow.

Timothy Wenk's Magic Show tours about 500 schools nationwide each year. He has even sold magic tricks to David Copperfield.
