Our troop just returned from a camp in Alabama. At this camp, they sold
drinks in a nice spill proof plastic up. One bought the drink and cup at a
reasonable price and then was able to refill the cup throughout the week at
a reasonable price. If you wanted a soft drink, then this was the way it
had to be purchased. That cuts down on the cups or cans being discarded
carelessly around camp.
I agree completely that Scouts or anyone else for that matter should never
litter but policies like the drink policy at this camp help make it a
non-issue and helps insure a cleaner camp.
