Girl Scout Promise

On my honor, I will try:
To serve God* and my country,
To help people at all times,
And to live by the Girl Scout Law.
"You must do the thing you think you cannot do."

Live - Love - Lead - Go Green

Today we read about "Eco Ellie".
You can click on her or her name above to get to her story.
She gave tips to make our Carbon Footprint smaller by comparing an Elephant size CFP to a mouse size CFP.
The troop goal for their service project with their cookie money is to do something good for the environment. Eco Ellie encourages Brownies to Live - Love - Lead.
We are Discovering facts about our environment and ways to help save it and make our lives more "Green". We are Connecting to what we are learning to our service project and Connecting our cookie money to fund the recycling project. We are Taking Action and Leading the way with our families and our community to Reduce, Reuse and Recycle!

When asked to "Imagine if . . . You could change the world" all of the troop individually answered in one way or another that they would work to save the world by "Going Green".
So that is just what we are doing.
One day, one girl, one action at a time! We will sell cookies and take the lead with our service project of a recycling project to do our part to save the world!

Brownies - you may enjoy Bill Nye, The Science Guy's new show on Planet Green called Stuff Happens. (Cox Channel 102, DTV Channel 286, Dish Channel 194). Have Mom or Dad set your Tivo or DVR to record it so you can watch as a family!
