Girl Scouts Go Green

School starts soon. That means my Girl Scout, Sarah, is going to get busy with scouting. In our area, the girls start off the year with a camp out at a waterslide park. How fun does that sound?

My girl bridged earlier this year when she joined a group of thousands of other Girl Scouts from around the country with a Bridging walk across the Golden Gate Bridge in San Francisco. It was a thrilling event for the girls. They handed out handmade keepsakes to the girls they passed on the bridge.

The new Girl Scout catalog came in the mail today and I was excited to see that they’ve included some “green” products for the girls. Some of the products are made with organic materials and all are affordably priced. There’s a tote that appears to be made out of traditional cotton canvas, but it’s reusable and it features phrases like “Reduce, Reuse, Recycle,” or “Act Now.” The purpose is to promote going green. It measures 16″ by 13″ and would work well for a book bag.

Whatever happens to  missing socks?  Grab  a couple pairs of these low-cut socks for your Girl Scout and save yourself the made rush to find her uniform on meeting day.  They are made of a blend of nylon, combed cotton, spandex and 48% organic cotton.
