Recycling Heroes: Girl Scouts of Fort Gregg-Adams

July 6, 2023 | Published by Julie Buchanan

Members of Girl Scout Troop 5391 are the newest recipients of the CVWMA Recycling Steward patch!

In order to earn the patch, youths must complete a project that teaches the values of reducing, reusing and recycling.

The scouts chose to repurpose plastic milk jugs into birdfeeders and flower pots. The project taught them the importance of reusing materials that might otherwise become waste.

Birdfeeders were hung near the scout hut at Fort Gregg-Adams, where the scouts will continue to refill them.

Flower pots became gifts for loved ones.

“Our troop has decided to make more of an effort to recycle in our hut by identifying a receptacle for recyclable items,” wrote troop leader Julia Griffin. “We are also looking into purchasing a recycled bench for a local park. The girls are also encouraging their families to recycle at home.

“It was a wonderful experience and we can’t wait to do more for our environment.”
