“My Girl Scout Troop and myself wanted to say thank you for your page,!  My troop found your resources to be so helpful while they are working very hard on earning their Go Green badges!  The girls would like to suggest another page, as a thank you for being such a big help: They thought that other people (and possibly other Girl Scout Troops) would find it as helpful as they did!”

We appreciate their feedback and we hope kids and adults find their suggested resource as helpful as they did:
