CLICK HERE AND TAKE THE PLEDGE!
GSGATL invites our members to pledge another year to be environmental stewards!
Take the pledge and complete a Take Action Project in your community for 2013!
Making a difference starts with you! Here’s how:
- Choose a Girl Scout Forever Green Project:
- Reduce Waste - Discover how to reduce the number of discarded single-use plastic bottles and bags, and increase aluminum recycling rates. (See water bottle tracking sticker)
- Plant Rain Gardens - Increase green space and wildlife habitats, and reduce water-borne pollutants running into streams, rivers, and other water supplies through the infiltration of rain gardens.
- Save Energy - Encourage sustainable, energy-saving behavior changes and reduce carbon dioxide footprints.
- Record your participation and project results and share with friends and family via social media or email.
- Take the Girl Scout Forever Green Pledge for 2013 online and invite others to do the same!
Anyone who participates in Girl Scouts Forever Green is eligible to purchase the Forever Green patch at your nearest GSGATL Badge & Sash Store!
NEW*** Get Moving with Girl Scout Forever Green for Girl Scout Juniors!
Volunteers can download the Forever Green Resource to be shown how to add a Girl Scout Forever Green focus into the activities available in the Get Moving! Journey Adult Guide.
Take lots of pictures and e-mail us about your project at firstname.lastname@example.org. Great projects may be highlighted on the council Facebook or Website!
The Forever Green projects and goals are well aligned with the It’s Your Planet—Love It! Leadership Journey, girls who participate in Forever Green as part of that journey can climb the Girl Scout Ladder of Leadership and earn awards along the way as they create positive change for the environment.
Girls, volunteers, and outside user groups are welcome to take either a virtual or on-location tour of the green building practices implemented into the construction of Girl Scouts of Greater Atlanta's Mableton Service Center.
In addition to the tour, Daisies, Brownies, or Juniors may choose to complete the patch program that accompanies age appropriate leadership Journeys.
The educational program and video were produced as part of the US Green Building Council's Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design Silver Certification and a local Grants to Green opportunity.
