Innovate project underway...

We spent 2 1/2 hours today cutting, sewing, pinning, and planning for our first ever INNOVATE project.  We studied energy, recycling, and more and decided to educate our community on the differences they can make for our environment by using recyclable sandwich and snack bags instead of ziploc bags.  Did you know that they can take anywhere from 20 to 1000 years to decompose in the landfill?  The girls are excited to be a part of this worthwhile cause and the bags that we made today show all their hard work...and especially all the hard work from the moms (and grandma) who helped with sewing and supervising the project!  We had scissors and straight pins floating around everywhere and we still had no injuries!  Yay!  I can't wait til March 17th for the girls to share all they've learned and the bags that they made. 
Have a wonderful spring break!....If you are in Austin by chance on March 12th (the actual 100 year anniversary of Girl Scouts) be sure to head to the capital building to celebrate with Girl Scouts from all over the state.  Be careful and have fun!
