Explorer Scouts from Coggeshall have achieved the bronze Green Footprint Award, run to promote green awareness in all sections of Scouting

Legend Explorer Scout Unit completed a large set of activities including setting up a composting bin outside the meeting place, discussed how being green may mean changes to lifestyle, designed a fictional island that only has certain natural resources, discussed the meeting place and is it the best place for us, looked at the attitudes to different power sources, made a cup of tea wasting as little energy and water as possible, understood how email can save paper and add a environmental signature to emails and many more…

The Unit are now working on their silver award.
