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."

Water we to do?

Now that we know that the world is in a water crisis, "Water" we to do about it??
We will be exploring this issue over the next few weeks and discover ways to take action to help be a solution to the problem.
Here's some links to explore:
For about the same price (or less if you go to the REI link above and order the bottle that is less than $7) of a case of "disposable" water bottles, you can have fresh, cool water all of the time in a reusable bottle. (Ask Mom or Dad before trying to order it!)
Think of ways that you can do good for the environment. How can you be a part of the solution? The plastic that we "throw away" ends up in the oceans and land fills does not go away. It affects us all.
Think of ways that you can make simple changes in your daily life. Write down your ideas and things you do or are going to start doing and bring to share on Monday.
If you have not already received the reuseable shopping bag from me, you will. It is one of your rewards for being "green" Girl Scouts and successfully selling cookies this year. When store clerks ask you now "paper or plastic?" You can confidently answer "neither."
If you want to look into other types of these bags - check out:
The one that you will receive is a Brown to Earth Bag Co reusable shopping bag.

Changing the world One Girl, One Day, One Action at a time!
