For the first time since 1999, the cookies have a new packaging design to promote the aims of the Girl Scout Cookie Program, a $786m business led by the organisation's girls. The contemporary new look reflects the Girl Scouts' refreshed brand image and embodies the spirit of modern Girl Scouting, which includes a strong awareness of ethical and environmental issues.
The GreenPalm logo was incorporated into the new pack designs for the range of 11 cookies, to show the organisation's commitment to addressing conservation and sustainability concerns related to Girl Scout Cookies.
So far over 6 million tonnes of sustainable palm oil has been supported via GreenPalm, we are delighted that girl scout cookies are part of the growing number of brands to support the RSPO.
The Girl Scout Cookie season runs from October to May, with the majority of local cookie sales beginning in late January or early February. If you're in the USA, find out here when cookies are available near you.
We highly recommend the Do-si-dos, or peanut butter sandwich !
