Orangutans Really Appreciate and Need Girl Scouts

About Project ORANGS

In 2007, Madison and Rhiannon set out to earn their Girl Scout Bronze Award by raising awareness about the endangered orangutan. While doing research, they learned that the orangutans' habitat in Indonesia and Malaysia, the rainforest, was being destroyed at alarming rates in order to plant oil palm plantations. The ingredient produced from these plantations, palm oil, is used in everything from candy bars to cosmetics. After making the shocking discovery that palm oil was an ingredient in Girl Scout Cookies, Madison and Rhiannon launched a campaign to make Girl Scout Cookies rainforest-safe.
