FALLBROOK – Recently, Girl Scouts from Troop 2154 have been working to achieve their Silver Award. The Silver Award is awarded to a girl who has proven her dedication to her community by taking action. This does not include simply providing a service but rather problem-solving to make a change or digging out the roots of a problem as a whole. This lead Troop 2154 to begin digging into the roots of a problem identified in the Fallbrook community. This problem is pollution.
This issue has been identified around the globe, and sadly is taking part in Fallbrook. The troop has decided to take action and help minimize this issue at hand, leading them to make a petition and encourage the public to sign it. This petition is to urge local authorities to implement stricter regulations and enforcement measures against littering and illegal dumping.
Although it's been noticed that many people dump to avert the cost of trash services, Troop 2154 wants to spread awareness for leveraging available resources. The troop supports stricter regulations and urges the public to do the same for the people of Fallbrook to live in a cleaner, less polluted place they call their community.
Here is the link to the petition that can change the future of the Fallbrook community for the better: https://www.change.org/p/clean-roads-for-a-safer-and-greener-community.
