Anyone who participated in GSFG in 2012 was eligible to receive the Girl Scouts Forever Green participation patch. Participation means they carry out or expand on one of the projects, record their project results on the GSFG website, and take the GSFG Pledge online. This patch is worn on the back of the uniform sash or vest.
There will not be a 2013 patch. As girls integrate GSFG into their It’s Your Planet—Love It! Journey experience, we hope more girls may earn the Journey awards by doing Reduce Waste, Save Energy and Rain Garden (GSFG) take action projects and tracking their environmental impact through this (GSFG) website.
