Troop 171 is Switching to Mess Kits

Troop 171 goes on many camping trips each year. All of the paper plates, cups and plastic silverware that gets thrown away really adds up! In fact, Troop 171 generates over 1,200 pounds of waste each year. Switching to reusable mess kits will greatly reduce the amount of waste the Troop generates. Starting with the Shepherd's Field Camping trip March 15-16, all Scouts and AWs will need to have their own mess kit.
