Through the Boy Scouts of America and "Stow It Don’t Throw It" Project, 16 members of Boy Scout Troop 441 in Pembroke Pines, FL helped construct and distribute a grand total of 184 personal-sized fishing line recycling bins in December. Over 150 of the bins were given to the University of Florida, the West Broward High School, and the Seminole Tribe of Florida. After working to build the bins themselves , the troop was happy to report that everybody they were passed out to seemed enthusiastic about the project and the bins were well received!
plans to distribute the rest of the bins they made at upcoming fishing events
and continue working to keep fishing line out of the ocean. A big thanks to the
Nicholas Cripps and Boy Scout Troop 411 for all their hard work and help!
