Girl Scouts Forever Green

New York's reports that On March 12, Girl Scouts of the USA will celebrate its 99th birthday. In preparation to celebrate the centennial, many activities and events are being planned both locally and nationally to celebrate our history. A nationwide take-action project entitled “Girl Scouts Forever Green” will allow Girl Scouts of all ages, volunteers and alumnae to participate in a meaningful leadership experience that makes a huge positive impact on the environment.
On Wednesday, Earth Hour and Girls Scouts of the USA announced a collaboration to increase environmental education, awareness and action. This collaboration is part of the Earth Hour global campaign, launched today in Singapore, that marks the beginning of a new phase for Earth Hour to “go beyond the hour” – encouraging people to capture, share and inspire environmental conversation and action year-round.
Earth Hour is a global initiative that invites individuals, businesses, governments and communities to turn off their lights for one hour – 8:30 p.m. on Saturday, March 26 – to show support for environmentally sustainable action. In the United States, Earth Hour is partnering with the Girl Scouts to bring the movement to life.
