Our Brownie Troop is Going Green

Brownie's Showing their Spirit and Going Green!

I am the leader of my daughter's Brownie Troop at St. Joseph's School in Millbrook, New York. We have been working on our Big Community Service Project for the last 2 months and will finally see all our hard work pay off as we help reduce the amount of plastic bags that make it into our landfills.

We have collected 500 used t-shirts from family and friends to turn into recycled tote bags. We will be handing out our tote bags in front of the A&P in Lagrange on Saturday, April 25th 3-6PM. We are not charging for our tote bags and will only be accepting donations for our local food bank!

We will be helping our community cut down on their use of plastic bags and also gave 500 t-shirts a new purpose.

I am so proud of these 2nd and 3rd grade girls and their dedication to this HUGE project! They have worked so hard cutting, sewing, folding, and making signs for our event.

I will post more pictures after our event. And please stop by if you are in the area and pickup a t-shirt tote bag from us.
