Cubs can go green in Paisley.

Cub Scouts in Paisley are being encouraged to go eco as part of a newly revised badge to teach children the importance of looking after the world.

The Environmental Conservation Activity badge is now sponsored by The Salvation Army's Recycle with Michael initiative, which works with children to divert thousands of tonnes of unwanted clothing and shoes away from landfill.

Kirk Bradley, head of corporate partnerships at The Salvation Army Trading Company Ltd, said: "We are thrilled to now be sponsoring the Cub Scouts' Environmental Conservation Activity badge through our Recycle with Michael initiative.

"This partnership not only actively encourages our next generation to take responsibility for their environmental actions, but also helps support the work of The Salvation Army who provide practical and emotional support to vulnerable people and tackle issues including homelessness.

"If the Cub Scout movement can engage our children in conservation efforts, and they then in turn encourage parents, siblings and peers to make just small adjustments to their daily lives, we are at least on the pathway to change.

"At The Salvation Army we are dedicated to making an impact through this change, so we are excited about our relationship with the Cub Scouts moving forward."

Simon Carter, head of media for The Scouts, said: "We are thrilled to be partnering up with the Salvation Army for the Environmental Conservation Activity badge."
