A2: Girl Scout Cookies

Time magazine reports on efforts by two Ann Arbor Girl Scouts – Madison Vorva and Rhiannon Tomtishen – to eliminate palm oil from Girl Scout cookies. ”Last week Vorva and Tomtishen had a two-hour meeting at the organization’s national headquarters in New York City, and the group agreed to research palm oil to see if they can get more of the ingredient sustainably, or replace it. The entire campaign is a reminder that one of the most effective ways to achieve environmental change is to engage the major companies and organizations that source natural resources from around the world, and pressure them to change.” [Source]
