This week’s #TroopTuesday shoutout goes to Troop 2165. Troop 2165 went to Troop 2146’s very first troop meeting and helped the younger girls learn all about using resources wisely. They planted flowers in recycled yogurt containers and they learned how to check if an item is recyclable (hint: look at the bottom of the product).

How are your older girls helping their younger Girl Scout sisters this year?
