Bertie and the Stork | Episode 1
Presented by Little Angel Theatre
Bertie is a bottle.
He used to be full of sparkling water, but now he is empty inside and lives at the rubbish dump. Bertie dreams that one day he will be recycled into a kite. But, for now, he is stuck in landfill. Lilly is a stork. She lives close to the dump in a nest and she is Bertie’s best friend.
Although it is a little smelly, they like living at the dump. It is amazing to see all of the interesting things that humans throw away.
Bertie... is an environmental entertainment and education series for children aged 3 to 8. The children will learn about different environmental issues and consider how they can take their own steps to help combat climate change. All puppets and set have been designed and made using found and recycled materials – LAT is committed to environmental sustainability in our actions as well as in our content.
