Cub Scout Archives: Litter to Glitter

Litter to Glitter is one of the Cub Scout program themes for the core value of Resourcefulness. Here is what the program helps say about this theme:

“Resourcefulness is using resources to their fullest. Part of being resourceful is learning not to be wasteful and to recycle items to make something new and wonderful from something old. Used items can also be repurposed, or used for something other than their original purpose. One example is using an empty tissue box to store recyclable plastic grocery bags that you can then use as wastebasket liners. By being resourceful we also help take care of our planet by converting litter we have into useful objects, thus turning litter into glitter.”
