Honor our founder. Honor Earth. Honor our powerful sisterhood.
Be part of something bigger than yourself.
In 2012, Girl Scouts will celebrate its 100th anniversary. To mark this milestone and to honor founder Juliette Gordon Low, who loved nature and the outdoors, Girl Scouts of all ages, volunteers, and alumnae are taking part in Girl Scouts Forever Green (GSFG). This global, take-action project offers a meaningful leadership experience that makes a huge positive impact on the environment and increases the visibility of Girl Scouts in every community.
Girl Scouts are at the forefront of environmental sustainability, leading their families, schools, and communities in protecting natural resources.
Girl Scouts Forever Green invites girls to take action on one of three projects that lead to sustainable behavior change and environmental impact.
The projects are:
Earth Hour: To encourage sustainable behavior change, reduce carbon dioxide footprints, and save energy and money by participate in the symbolic Earth Hour event on Saturday, March 31, 2012. Also, girls are encouraged to go beyond the hour by replace incandescent light bulbs with ENERGY STAR® qualified, or other energy-efficient, bulbs.
In addition to the projects, we also want girls to take the GSFG online pledge a year-long commitment to Girl Scouts Forever Green efforts — and then get their friends and families to pledge, too!
For our 2012 council sponsored project, we will again be conducting simultaneous Earth Hour events across Colorado on Saturday, March 31 from 8:30-9:30pm MST. These events will be open to all Girl Scouts, friends, family and the community at large. Everyone is welcome!
