What is “Scouts Trash the Trash Day”?

“Scouts Trash the Trash Day” is an international Messengers of Peace project for Scouts around the world, where each Scout is challenged to bring a friend or family member along and pick up at least one kilo (2.2 pounds) of trash each on Saturday, May 7th. The idea for “Scouts Trash the Trash Day” came from the Scouts of Troop 1206 in Helena, Montana after realizing that there are several days throughout the year that Scouts get together and do the same thing on the same day. Scouts are asked to bring a non-scout with them on this day of service in order to double the impact of their trash cleaning effort.
“Scout Trash the Trash Day” is about more than just cleaning our planet, it is a day to show the world what Scouting is about, educate individuals about Scouting and recruit new boys, girls and adults into the Scouting movement.

Where does this take place?

Right in your hometown! Find a local park, a playground, a neighborhood – trash your trash the Scout way!


Who can participate?
