Join Troop 66446 virtually as we clean up our home communities! Leading up to Earth Day, Wednesday, April 22, 2020, we will be doing an online trash pick-up challenge across Colorado. Let’s make a difference together and see if we can pick up 50,000 pieces of trash across our gorgeous state.
Be sure to practice safe pick-up methods during participation:
- Tell an adult that you’ll be participating or work with a guardian to participate together.￼￼
- Sign the Girl Scout Internet Safety Pledge.￼
- Follow all safety activity checkpoints￼￼.
- Make sure that you have proper gear: washable or reusable gloves, trash bags, plenty of water, sunscreen, close toe shoes, bug spray, and clothing appropriate for the weather.￼￼￼￼￼
Ready to start making a difference? Follow the steps below:
- Download the Litterati app on your phone: https://apiv3.litterati.org/v3/share/challenge/5292
- Create an account
- Join the challenge￼￼: Girl Scouts of Colorado
Keep in mind, “virtually” still means NOT getting together as a troop, just going on an afternoon walk and picking up around where you live.

We want to hear how your girl is using her Girl Scout skills by taking initiative, caring for the community, and Girl Scouting at home. She can send in her story here.
