About Project O.R.A.N.G.S
Welcome to our blog for Project O.R.A.N.G.S. ( Orangutans Really Appreciate And Need Girl Scouts) We have been working to save the orangutans for over 3 years. Our new goal is to remove all palm oil from all Girl Scout Cookies across the U.S.A.; because palm oil is grown on what used to be rainforest land but has been cleared for palm oil plantations. This means that orangutans and many other endangered animals lose their habitat.
We have some projects going to show the Girl Scouts that people care about this important issue and would like to see it resolved. Some of the projects we have planned are a letter writing campaign, a petition and a boycott suggesting the Girl Scout Council uses a healthier and more environmentally friendly oil like canola oil or sunflower oil. We will continue posting more information and ways to help.
We have been in contact with the National Girl Scout Headquarters and have been trying to talk with them. We had a brief conference call with them in late September and haven’t had much contact with them since. We are really hoping that they will give us a chance to present to them and listen to our cause so the Girl Scouts, a great organization can become even better.
We have met with our Regional Girl Scouts and representatives from Little Brownie Bakers (one of the cookie’s bakers) and we will hopefully be meeting with them again soon!
We will be posting updates and more information about our projects!!! If you would like to contact us please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org
