Old paper, new paper, a classic Sesame Street short

Watch more with these video collections:

Not only does this classic Sesame Street short explain paper recycling in a relatable way, but it’s always a nice touch to hear a wide variety of music styles for a wide variety of settings: Old paper, new paper (Newspapers are recycled), circa 1977.

Bonus: “Old papuh, new papuh!” …love that old NYC flavor.

In the archives: more Sesame Street, more paper, and more recycling.
