At 11 years old, we launched a national campaign to make Girl Scout cookies rainforest-safe by changing the source of an ingredient, palm oil. We used Twitter, Facebook, online petitions & appearances in national media outlets like the Wall Street Journal, to raise awareness and gather the support of 100,000 consumers. Six years later, we have been able to convince the Girl Scouts to adopt a sustainable palm oil policy. Our work continues to create a movement for deforestation-free products!
