Vista Girl Scout Troop 1569 celebrated Earth Day 2019 by donating new trash and recycle bins to Alta Vista Botanical Gardens, where the girls have earned a few of their outdoor-related badges with Farmer Jones. Troop 1569 used part of their Cookie Business proceeds to provide the bins, trash bags, and new signs to help visitors sort the trash, recyclables, and compost materials into the proper cans. The girls of Troop 1569 decided on this project after learning from Farmer Jones that sometimes garden visitors leave trash behind simply because waste receptacles were not highlighted throughout the garden. The troop tied this idea into their Global Action Award Take-Action Project, touching on United Nations Goal #15: Life on Land, promoting sustainable use in ecosystems. Troop Leader are Jessica Frey, Anillon Hackney and Sophie Tewolde
