Sign the Petition to

Anna Maria Chávez, CEO, Girl Scouts of the USA

Last May, over 13,000 boxes Girl Scout cookies were thrown in a landfill in San Gorgonio, California. It was recently revealed that Girl Scout cookies have been thrown away at the end of season every year, across the nation. The Girl Scouts Organization has stated that there is no national protocol in existence to deal with the remainder of unsold cookies every may when they can no longer be purchased. 

We demand that the Girl Scouts Organization create a protocol that deals with all left over girl scout cookies when their production is discontinued in May. This protocol should include the donation of all leftover cookies programs that send packages to troops who are serving abroad, as well as local homeless shelters and food banks. 

We demand that this protocol be created and take effect immediately for the end of girl scout cookie season this year. 


Signed,

Emma Vermaak

My name is Emma and I am an 11-year-old Girl Scout. I am very upset about the absolute wastefulness being exhibited by the Girl Scouts. You should be too!  First the Girl Scouts stopped me from collecting donations to send cookies to the troops.  Then the news started reporting videos of them throwing 13,000 boxes of cookies in the trash. Send those cookies to our troops!  Our troops are far away from their families. They deserve our love and sending them cookies is a great way to show them we care. The Girl Scouts has a history of throwing away the extra cookies and this year, we want them to go to the troops!  

Due to this petition, the Girl Scouts are trying to remove me from my troop. The recently revealed footage of girl scout cookies being destroyed was taken of boxes that used to belong to my troop council in San Gorgonio, California. I do not want to leave my troop, but I am not going to back down, even if they do throw me out.  Please help me show them that they cannot bully me and they cannot waste food.  Further, they should do everything possible to give back to our troops who help keep this country free so organizations like the Girl Scouts can even exist.
