Girl Scouts of Connecticut Spreads the Go Green Message for Earth Day - Girl Scouts celebrate Earth Day at the Trumbull Mall


April 29, 2010

On Saturday, April 24, Girl Scouts from across the state celebrated Earth Day at the Westfield Trumbull Mall. The girls spent the day educating the public on the importance of taking care of our planet, learning about important environmental programs, and participating in a variety of earth-friendly activities. 

Participants learned how to make their own Earth-friendly cleaners, calculate how far their food travels before it gets to their sandwich, make use of their empty Girl Scout Cookie box by turning it into a bank, ride a stationary bike to see how much pedal power it takes to light a light bulb, and helped to build a junk mail tree to highlight the importance of reducing junk mail.

The Girl Scout Law encourages Girl Scouts to use resources wisely and Girl Scouts throughout Connecticut have been working hard to help the environment in their own neighborhoods. They are effecting change through the use of new recycle bins, reusable lunch trays, and a statewide sneaker recycling program. Through their chosen projects, the girls take action as resourceful problem solvers, advocate for themselves and others, and educate and inspire others in ways that aim for sustainable change.

More than 44,000 girls in Connecticut today are building courage, confidence, and character through Girl Scouts. Through the exemplary Girl Scout program girls discover their strengths, connect with others, and take action to make the world a better (and greener) place.
