As with Girl Scouts’ Forever Green initiative, ABC Bakers supports and encourages ways to improve sustainability. And we’re making a major impact with “out-of-the-box” thinking.
A first for the Girl Scout Cookie Program, ABC took our Thanks-A-Lot Girl Scout Cookies out of the box in 2010, a move that allowed us to reduce 150 tons of paperboard from America’s waste stream. And we were able to ship more cookies in a truck, saving an estimated 2,600 gallons of diesel fuel a year!
Bouyed by overwhelmingly positive response from Girl Scout membership and consumers, our Lemonades Girl Scout Cookies join Thanks-A-Lot in this packaging innovation. By eliminating the carton on both popular cookies, Girl Scouts of the USA and ABC Bakers are taking more than 300 tons of paperboard out of the waste stream annually.
ABC is proud to support Girl Scouts everywhere in their efforts to be good stewards of our environment!
