Scouts is the Start of Zero Waste

Imagine a world with no trash and useless waste. Reduce your impact by challenging yourself to a waste-free camp, making beeswax wraps as an alternative to plastic wrap or running a campaign to help people reduce their single-use plastics.

Here's to a more sustainable world for all with little or no waste being produced. 

Are you ready to be more sustainable? 

Everyone on Earth consumes a lot whether that be water, food, or resources. This means we create a lot of waste! Take action and limit single use plastics and reuse and recycle what you can! 

Activities to reduce, reuse and recycle 

Sustainable Living is fun!

  • Why does it matter how much garbage we create and dispose of? 
  • What are some ways you can buy more sustainable products or shop in a more sustainable way? 
  • What are some ways that you can use less plastic in your life?
