In 2007, Madison and Rhiannon earned their Girl Scout Bronze Award by raising awareness about the Orangutan and their rainforest habitat. After learning that the Girl Scout Cookies they had sold for years contained palm oil, an ingredient that results in rainforest destruction and human rights abuses the two girls founded Project ORANGS. Now seniors in high school, Madison and Rhiannon are committed to ensuring that Girl Scout Cookies are rainforest safe. In the fall of 2011, GSUSA announced their new palm oil policy, a step in the right direction, and the first policy change in GSUSAs history driven directly by girls. As youth, Madison and Rhiannon have fought to make their voices heard and to show other youth the tremendous power they have to make a difference. Their mission is to show consumers that their daily purchasing decisions have global impacts. In 2012 the UN honoured them as “North American Forest Heroes” for their work to promote the need for deforestation free palm oil.
