Scout Unit Resources
We realize the transition from bags to door hangers has presented challenges for some, but the BSA prides itself on teaching the values of environmental stewardship and we’re not putting those values into practice by introducing hundreds of thousands of plastic bags into the ecosystem each year. Besides, more and more municipalities are banning plastic grocery bags, so we’re trying to stay ahead of the curve. Most households have plastic or paper bags or boxes they can use to put the food out for pick-up. Based on feedback from last year, we’re going to change the die cut of the hangers so they’re less likely to fall off doors.
We’ve received word that some units are requesting bags from local grocery stores, including our partners at ACME, because they feel door hangers aren’t sufficient. The stores do not have a budget for this and it puts them in an uncomfortable position. We respectfully ask that units do not request bags from grocery stores, out of respect for our partners and for the reasons outlined above. Thank you for your cooperation!
