From Troop 62879
On June 3rd, Girl Scout Troop 62879 hosted an electronics recycling event at three different Denver metro locations. We partnered with Metech Recycling, an e-Stewards recycling company. We were at Grandview High School in Aurora, Northfield Stapleton in Denver and Sky Ridge Medical Center in Lone Tree. We kept 14,241 pounds of electronic materials out of landfills! We also collected nearly $600 in donations for Girl Scouts’ Grants for Girls.
This project took us nine months of planning time. On the day of the event we generated media coverage from 9NEWS, CBS Channel 4 and the Denver Post. In the end, we achieved the highest award a Cadette can receive – the Silver Award. We are proud to be Girl Scouts and to have the opportunity to engage in compelling leadership activities that make the world a better place.
