Green ME Up
Cloudy skies and rain showers didn’t keep our dedicated young
environmentalists away from our second annual Green ME Up! Celebration
on April 21, 2019 at L.L.Bean in Freeport.
More than 800 Girl Scouts and their friends and family came out for a day filled with inspiration on how to take action to make Maine – and the world – a greener place.
Kids got active in the outdoors with rock climbing on EVO’s climbing wall, as well as archery, fly casting, and a demo on catch and release with the L.L.Bean Outdoor Discovery Programs. Music by Earth Jams and Planet Pan got us moving to the beat, and we learned so much from One Plastic Bag children’s book author, Miranda Paul.
Families also got to take action and support the environment making reusable food wraps, composting with WormMainea, recycling with ecomaine, learning about “Leave No Trace” and making tree jewelry with Project Learning Tree. And how neat was it to learn about bio-fuel technology? From cooking fries to fueling the L.L.Bean Boot Mobile…now that’s cool! Plus, 500 kids accepted our Green ME Up! Passport Challenge and were rewarded with reusable stainless steel drinking straws! Way to go!
We can’t wait to celebrate again with you next year!
Save the Date for April 18, 2020!
