Linlithgow Cub Scouts

Linlithgow Cub Scouts recently completed their Global Challenge badge. The Cubs learned about climate change and the global issues which arise from wasting the Earth's natural resources and sending waste to landfill. Each Cub completed the Wormery Challenge to investigate how composting food and garden waste can help reduce the need for landfill and discussed how they could Reduce, Reuse and Recycle at home. Each Cub received a Wormery Challenge certificate and some recycled goodies along with their Global Challenge badges.
