Elmer’s Glue Crew, Troop 70068

Two of my 5th grade students came to me the other day and asked if I would spread the word about a special service project their Troop is working on. Girl Scouts from Troop 70068 are currently working with Terracycle, a outsmart waste company, to collecting Elmer’s Glue products. Just like our Crayola Color Cycle project, Terracycle is asking that the glue products be mostly empty or unusable.  The collection will begin Thursday, March 20th and will end on June 24th (the last day of school.) The box will be located by the hallway in front of the main office.

I love when materials can be reused and turned into something useful. Thats exactly what Terracycle  is doing, turning glue bottles into benches, trash cans, and other useful items. So cool! I can’t wait to go through my old glue containers and contribute. I hope you will too!

Girl Scouts from Troop 70068 are currently working on their Bronze Award Project, which is the biggest award a Junior Girl Scout can receive!  Good luck ladies!
