It’s in Girl Scouts’ DNA. Our founder, Juliette Gordon Low, was a famous lover of nature. Today, Girl Scouts honors her legacy by promoting respect and love of the great outdoors far and wide.
Through Girl Scouting, girls learn to value the Earth as their home and are inspired to develop a lasting commitment to the environment through care, conservation, and responsibility.

Take action by changing habits at home, in your community and in the world.
In this activity, you will learn about the problem of food waste, conduct a food waste audit in your own home, and learn about ways to reduce food waste. This activity is for Girl Scout Juniors, Cadettes, Seniors, and Ambassadors (Grades 4-12) and may be used to earn the Planet Saver patch.
The RISE Challenge is part classroom learning, part competition, and part summit, focused on natural hazards and student-led learning. The RISE Challenge engages students in the exploration of their communities to determine where they are vulnerable to natural disasters and tasks them with developing their own ideas for making their community more resilient. Through this initiative, we are developing engaged citizens by building their resilience toolbox when they are still young.

When each of us does our part to save electricity and water at home, together we can make a difference in reducing our carbon footprint! To earn this Save Our Energy action patch, you will complete several activities that focus on what actions you can take individually to slow climate change.
