THIS PROJECT IS A REQUIRED PART OF THE 100th YEAR BADGE!
As of March of 2012, Girl Scouts of Montana and Wyoming are participating in the Forever Green 100th anniversary Take Action project as part of Girl Scouts 100th anniversary. We are 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.
What Does This Mean?
- We are 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 are 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 are 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 is available to purchase from Girl Scouts of Montana and Wyoming for girls who participate in this month long Take 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.
- If 800,000 Girl Scouts switch to using reusable bags and bottles, we’ll eliminate nearly 630 million pounds of plastic waste over the girls’ lifetimes.
- This is the equivalent to the weight of 140 space shuttles at the time of take-off!

YIPPEE! A great Hallmark Channel movie featuring Girl Scouting! “Smart Cookies” airs on Saturday, August 18 – the same weekend as the Cheyenne 100th Event. Make sure you set your DVRs to record it while you join us in CHEYENNE for the final 100 year celebration event!
“Smart Cookies” – About the Movie
In celebration of the 100 year anniversary of the Girl Scouts of the USA, four-time Emmy® nominee and two-time Golden Globe® nominated actress Patricia Richardson (“Home Improvement”) stars with Jessalyn Gilsig (“Glee”) and Bailee Madison (“Just Go With It”) in the Hallmark Channel Original Movie World Premiere, “Smart Cookies.”
Julie Sterling (Jessalyn Gilsig) is a high-maintenance realtor who is just two sales away from being named “Real Estate Agent of the Year.” A firm businesswoman, her schedule doesn’t leave much time for anything else, including relationships. So when her boss Lola (Patricia Richardson) launches a closeted promotion for the company masquerading as company-wide commitment to community pro-social work, and assigns Julie to lead a struggling local Girl Scout troop, Julie is full of protests. Then, she meets the group of hopeless girls, a troop named the Fireflies, including eager new member Daisy (Bailee Madison). As she gets to the know the girls and sees their desperate need for friendship and self esteem, Julie begins to do whatever it takes to transform them from zeroes to heroes in the annual cookie sale competition against their rivals, the Monarchs.
With her high-powered sales skills, Julie puts the coveted “Real Estate Agent of the Year” possibility on hold and coaches the girls toward the highest profit on the cookie drive— until she finds out one of her girls is hiding a painful family secret and needs the help of her fellow scouts. To earn her own badge of compassion-—and discover a meaningful romance with Daisy’s dad-—Julie must learn the bottom line isn’t as important as the lasting
