A Spoon's Story

 

Stage 1, 2 and 3

Have you ever wondered what it takes to make a single-use plastic spoon? Make some noise and clap your hands as we re-enact the story of how a plastic spoon is made. Meet Ned the Nurdle, a clumsy plastic pellet that gets lost as he journeys thousands of kms to become the plastic spoon you use for 3 minutes in your fruit cup.
