Earlier this year WRAP, world leaders in supporting organisations to be more recycling efficient, launched a nationwide competition called Ready, Set, Recycle. The project worked in collaboration with The Scout Association to challenge Beavers, Cubs, Scouts and Explorer Scouts to recycle as much packaging over 4 months as possible. The individual troops documented their process and shared it with other scout groups through the Scout Association website.
WRAP has announced local troop the 3rd Aberystwyth Scouts as the winners. The prize was a goodie bag from Recycle Now and a group trip to CAT.
CAT’s dedicated teaching staff Christine McLennan and Ann MacGarry took the winners on a fun filled tour of CAT’s recycling and waste displays followed by a hands-on recycling workshop to further inspire their recycling efforts.
WRAP Director Marcus Gover said about the project,
“The ‘Ready, Set, Recycle’ challenge is a positve way to engage the whole family and get them recycling more at home. The Scout Association is well-known for the work it does to encourage young people to help their local communities, so we are extremely pleased to also be supporting the Environmental Conservation Activity Badge.”
