Join GSGI virtually as we clean up our home communities. Starting on May 1st, we are kicking off our six-week online trash pick-up challenge. Let's make a difference in our communities and see if together we can pick up 20,000 pieces of litter!

BE SURE TO PRACTICE SAFE TRASH PICK-UP METHODS DURING PARTICIPATION.

• Tell an adult that you will be participating or work with your parent/guardian to participate together.

• Follow all Safety Activity Checkpoints

• Sign the Girl Scout Internet Safety Pledge

• Make sure that you have the proper gear: Washable/reusable gloves, trash bag, plenty of water, sunscreen, closed toe shoes, but spray, and clothing appropriate for the weather.

Keep in mind: follow all social distancing practices while participating in this challenge. Check out the CDC’s social distancing guidelines HERE.
