Recycle Now

Our partnership with the Recycle Now aims to make recycling normal, by supporting the Beaver Global Issues Activity Badge and Scout Environmental Conservation Activity Badge.

The partnership with Recycle Now is a perfect fit a young people play a key part in helping us protect our precious planet by recycling more of the right things, more often and not wasting our valuable resources.

By completing the Beaver Global Issues Activity Badge and the Scout Environmental Conservation Badge, the Beavers and Scouts will be ‘doing their bit’ towards helping our environment and will learn about the importance.

Recycle Now will provide you with;

  • A range of resources to support the badges.
  • Information about understanding recycling in your local area.

Badge and resources

As a partner of the Beaver Global Issues Activity Badge and the Scout Environmental Conservation Activity Badge, young people can get involved in activities to become better at recycling and share their knowledge with friends and families.
