Girl Leaders in Girl Scouts

I don't know if anyone watched ABC WorldNews tonight, 5/22, but there was a very interesting story on two Girl Scouts. The girls were trying to achieve the highest honor, Girl Scout Bronze Award, and chose to work toward changes in food products use of palm oil. The creation of palm oil causes deforestation which leave the orangutans without their habitats. They found out their beloved cookies were using palm oil and along with a petition against palm oil and alas Girl Scout cookies. If you ask me they are two girls that will be the leaders of tomorrow!!

This is a link to a news article in the Seattle Times as ABC did not have anything about it on their website.
