        In this animated video from LOOP SCOOPS, Oliver and his sister Gabby visit LOOP headquarters, where they take a quiz about Oliver's computer game. The kids are surprised to learn that the parts in the game device came from 18 different countries and traveled 228,000 miles; that the game device contains titanium, gold, and mercury; and that millions of discarded the game devices have ended up in landfills. After learning this, Oliver decides to keep his current the game device rather than getting a new one.
