    Complete the Conservation Challenge

    1. Participate in the Earth Hour program by turning off all non-essential electronic devices for one full hour.

    2. Participate in the I Tapped Out program by turning off the water when you brush your teeth.
      • Turn off the water when you brush your teeth. GSMIDTN wants others to know how we can all work together and do a simple thing to make the world a better place.
      • Keep track and let us know. Use a calendar or make a chart to record your progress. Try to use a chart for at least 3 days. Get your family and friends to do it, too.
    3. Participate in the Project Green Tree program by learning about the impact of deforestation on our planet.
      • Take a hike and learn how to identify five of the trees around you.
      • Trees have had many uses, both in the past and present. Research their uses and then record how many tree products you use a day.
      • Recycle! In your home, place a box to put all your recycling instead of the trash can. When the box is full, take it to a recycling bin or make something new out of it.

    Being a Girl Scout means you are part of a community. This community is a place where every girl can be herself and be part of a great network of other girls who all are joined in the spirit of Girl Scouts. While we often think of our Girl Scout community in physical terms like troop meetings and summer camp, it is so much more than that!

    Girl Scouts is a vast network of girls that is not tied to any physical location or place; Girl Scouts can be anywhere at any time. This patch is all about exploring what it means to be a Girl Scout in the digital world. You will experience a new or different version of some familiar activities in a virtual environment. Using your devices, you can explore an amazing assortment of activities and experiences without ever having to leave your home.
