EPISODE 2 premieres Wednesday 19 August 2pm
Charlotte finds ways of making new, fun and unusual friends from things that get thrown away. We'd love to see what you make from your recycling - puppets, models, pets, friends, robots or rockets.
Share your photos with us and we'll include them in Episode 2 or add them to our #FeedbackFriday gallery.
You will find lots of useful resources in our Discover Recycling Creative Learning Toolkit.
