Sustainability Stories: What Is Your Council Doing? Let Us Know!

For the 2012 BSA Annual Report, we are looking for inspiring stories about what your council has been doing in the areas of sustainability and environmental stewardship. Have you launched any “green” initiatives at your summer camps or your council office buildings? Does your local Scout shop have a compost pile out back?

As one example, the Miami Valley Council recently updated their Facebook page with a photo of some new, environmentally friendly signage being installed at the council’s new offices. Not only do the signs support the BSA’s branding guidelines, they also are powered by LED lighting, which reduces energy cost and usage, as well as bulb replacement.

No idea is too small. Please leave a comment below, or send your best ideas to internal.communications@scouting.org.
