Did you take part in Future Girl Acts?
Between 30 September and 6 October 2019 we came together to tackle plastic pollution
Future Girl Acts was a key part of our first Planet Protectors campaign. We’ve been amazed by all the wonderful creatures you created out of plastic and seeing all the reasons why girls were taking action. Over 100,000 girls and 25% of units took part, so thank you!
The girls loved making their plastic sculptures to show how much they cared about plastic pollution. And some of the designs were really inventive!
We became #PlanetProtectors completing the #FutureGirlActs challenge. We collected 106 pieces of plastic and used them to make turtles and a mermaid #girlguiding #PlasticPromise #EastLothian @GirlguidingEL pic.twitter.com/b1XrcaxyyP— 1st Muss Guides (@1stMussGuides) October 3, 2019

🌍 The 3rd Rutherglen Brownies & 1st Bankhead Guides popped by my office today to give me their “Plastic Promises”. They took part in @Girlguiding's #PlasticPromise week of action - promising to reduce their use of single use plastic and encouraging others to do likewise 👏 pic.twitter.com/wQHXGS83m0— Clare Haughey MSP (@haughey_clare) October 4, 2019
So far, over 14,000 plastic promises have been made! We want people to continue to pledge, so encourage your friends and family to make their own promises too.
