In March of 2012, Girl Scouts of Montana and Wyoming will be participating in the Forever Green 100th anniversary Take Action project as part of Girl Scouts 100th anniversary. We will be focusing on the Reduce Plastic Waste initiative, which encourages girls, volunteers, families and of course Girl Scout staff to use reusable water bottles and bags. You can take the pledge now to get ready. Go to girlscouts.org/gsforevergreen to learn more.
Girl Scouts of Montana & Wyoming will be participating in the Girl Scouts Forever Green program in March 2012.
What Does This Mean?
- We will be taking the “Reduce Plastic Waste” Challenge and using reusable water bottles and bags while encouraging others to do the same.
- Girl Scouts, Leaders, Alumni, Staff, Friends & Family will be encouraged take the pledge (on the Forever Green website) to commit to reduce plastic waste and keep track of their use for a month.
- Girl Scouts, Leaders, Alumni, Staff, Friends & Family will be working together with global Girl Scouts and friends to change the world!
How to get started: Girl Scouts and the community at large are invited to take the online Girl Scouts Forever Green Pledge at http://www.girlscouts.org/gsforevergreen. Those who make the pledge commit to a year of taking daily actions to protect the environment. The Girl Scout Forever Green patch will be available to purchase from Girl Scouts of Montana and Wyoming for girls who participate in this month longTake Action project.
As with all Girl Scout activities, Girl Scouts Forever Green gives girls the opportunity to develop leadership skills they can use now and throughout their lives.
- Girls at all grade levels discover what is meaningful to them and realize how their own values relate to the environment and what they can do to protect it.
- When Girl Scouts team together to implement Girl Scouts Forever Green in their schools and communities, they connect with others.
- Annually, Girl Scouts take action and inspire others to join the effort.
