Valdosta - Elementary students attending schools in Valdosta and Lowndes County are learning the "Magic of Recycling."

The interactive magic show is sponsored by Keep Lowndes/Valdosta Beautiful and emphasizes the importance of recycling to 5,000 local students.

The magic show targets children at a young age in order to instill proper recycling habits in them as they get older.  "One of the important things why we target the young kids is to get them to go home and tell their parents about it and try to get them to at least start a little bit. Hopefully this generation as the get older and become adults, it will just be second nature," says magician Greg Allen.

The Magic of Recycling show has touring the nations schools for 13 years.
