Spiffy uniforms aren’t the only thing green about the Girl Scouts these days. These kids are out to make the planet a better place, and not just by selling those scrumptious Thin Mints.

Scouts in our area are taking on “Forever Green” Community Action Projects to green their schools and communities, and they’re looking for mentors. If you’re willing to give advice on a variety of environmental projects — composting lunch food, creating green spaces, and the like — let them know.

The time commitment is minimal — only two meetings, plus e-mails and phone calls — for projects that wrap up by June. Who knows, maybe they’ll even give you a badge.
