A Girl Scout from Amherst has earned the Gold Award for working on a project about upcycling and sustainable fashion.
Anya Merriman-Mix is a member of Troop 11607 and a senior at the Dublin School.
She helped create and run a class on sustainable fashion in her school.
"Donating clothes doesn't have the positive impact most people think it will," Merriman-Mix said in her final report for her project. "There just isn't enough of a need for all of the unwanted clothes in people's closets, and much of what's donated isn't desirable."
She ran a workshop for girls ages 7 to 9 on upcycling, where they made no-sew tote bags and dream catchers with T-shirt yarn.
The Gold Award is the highest honor in Girl Scouts.AMHERST, N.H. —
