Our 2011 Girl Scouts Forever Green Signature Project is “Power Down and Unplug.” The purpose of this project is to encourage people to save energy and lower our carbon footprint. Girls can participate in one of four ways:
- Encourage your school or community business to power down and unplug during the noon hour on Friday, March 11th.
- Encourage your family to power down and unplug at home from 8 pm-9pm on March 11.
- Have your family participate in “Earth Hour” by turning off their lights from 8:30 – 9:30 p.m. on Saturday, March 26.
- Replace the light bulbs in your home with Energy Star, energy efficient light bulbs.
Whatever option girls choose, we encourage them to go to www.girlscouts.org/gsforevergreen to share their results with the world and take the Girl Scouts Forever Green Pledge.
