This curriculum-aligned, environmental rap song not only highlights responsibility for protecting our planet it also provides students with simple, practical suggestions for caring for the environment.
This original song, selected for inclusion in the ABC's 2010 SING! publication is being played by schools, after recess and lunch as a signal for students to clean up the playground (we call this Pavlovian environmentalism...)! :-)
Start with chorus and actions, and one verse only, for younger grades (K,1). Gradually add other verses.

Bin,bin,ch,ch,bin,bin, yeah! (x2)
Come on everybody keep it clean! (x4)
Listen up now, ’Cause this’ll make you really cool.

Listen up now, Put your rubbish in the bins.
Listen up now, ’Cause this is where it all begins.
Bin,bin,ch,ch,bin,bin, yeah. (x2)

For future generations,

We all have a duty,
Protecting Earth’s great beauty,
Together, you and I can lead the way.
