As Scouts, we recognise the importance of preserving our planet for future generations. One of our five Scout values is Care, caring for both others and our world. Our programme includes many activities to help the environment, such as litter picking and recycling.
Our building can also play a key role in helping us to save the planet, from energy to water. To help prevent water waste, we looked to change the taps in our washrooms from lever taps to push taps. This helps us to stop wasting water by ensuring that the taps are only on when they need to be. It also makes sure we are not wasting hot water which requires energy to heat (often provided by our solar system).
We would like to thank Basingstoke and Deane Borough Council for helping us to raise some funds towards this project through their Councillor Community Grant Scheme. With their help, and the support of our local councillor, we were able to replace all five of our taps.
