We have a fabulous float this year thanks so very much to Scott Bender for his work and enthusiasm! The theme is Healthy Lawns = Healthy Kids!

by Administrator April 26, 2018 challenge Girl Scouts inspiration make a change reusable water bottle
The 5th Grade Girl Scout Troop at Hunnewell challenges the community to a plastic water bottle free weekend, April 27-29, 2018. This weekend is chosen in honor of Earth Day, a celebration of nature. On this weekend, they ask you to plan ahead and bring a reusable water bottle to school, sports and activities.
This video will encourage you to sign their pledge and adhere to do your best to ditch disposable water bottles and go reusable instead. Some suggestions they offer to make the change include:
Try to remember to keep your reusable water bottle filled and ready to go for school, practice, rehearsal, on car trips, walks etc.
Doing so will allow you to take action to help the earth, keep our environment cleaner, and to save money.
They encourage you to lead by example and spread awareness so others will choose to go reusable too!
If you can do it for a weekend, you will see how easy it is to make the change forever.
Give it a try.
Thanks for the inspiration Hunnewell Troop 78199!
