Episode 3: The Plants We Use

Summary

Join Maddie to discover the plants that we use in our everyday lives and how we can help to look after them and our planet. We use plants like bamboo to build with, we make clothes from plants, and we even turn plants into useful materials like rubber for making wellington boots. And wood we use for musical instruments! Along the way, we discover how latex comes from inside a rubber tree, and Maddie goes high into the rainforest canopy to show us how tall a bamboo plant grows. She also makes a bowl from a banana leaf.
