On November 15, 2011, 43 Girl Scouts hosted a recycling drive in their community. The girls learned how to recycle and reuse coffee filters and made them into Thanksgiving place-mats. They also transformed empty plastic soda bottles into night lights. The girls collected used goods to recycle like eye wear, cell phones, ink cartridges, blankets and more.
Two years ago, Somerton didn’t have any Girl Scouts. Today, their troop of 43 girls is working hard to make a difference in their community.
