Boothster proud to work with the Boy Scouts of America on their latest sustainable tradeshow booth design August 02 2018
The Boy Scouts of America is one of the nation's largest and most prominent values-based youth development organizations, providing programs for young people that build character. For more than a century, the Boy Scouts of America has been a leader in conservation education and environmental stewardship. In fact, the Boy Scouts' commitment to sustainability goes back so far, you might say "the Boy Scouts were green back when green was just a color!"
All age groups of Boy Scouts are required to learn about conserving natural resources in order to maintain an ecological balance, and throughout the scouting experience, youths have many opportunities to learn and embrace sustainability. Young First Graders in the Tiger Cubs program are taught the importance of planting trees and learn to hang birdhouses. For Fifth Graders in the Arrow of Light Building a Better World adventure, Scouts are required to identify an energy problem in their local community and help educate people on how to recycle and conserve resources. Teenage Scouts must spend at least three hours on a conservation-related service project and the “Sustainability Merit Badge” is required for Eagle Scout status! All of these projects are fantastic ways for Scouts to deepen their knowledge, their commitment, and their investment in living more sustainably!
It is this long tradition of education and dedication to sustainability that makes Boothster proud to work with the Boy Scouts of America on their numerous booth designs, including their latest ecofriendly tradeshow booth and recyclable banner stands at the 2018 Summer Outdoor Retailer Convention.
Boothster has been working with the Scouts since the launch of their Sustainability program and Sustainability Merit Badge back in 2013.
