Girl Scout Cookie Boxes Take a Green Trial Run

A change in packaging

Today marks the start of National Girl Scout Cookie Weekend, and we don’t know about you, but we’re pretty stoked. And this year, we have more to look forward to than the cookies.

. . .

Instead of a paperboard box covering, three cookie varieties will come packaged in a thin film shaped like a box (the little plastic tray that keeps the cookies nice and organized also helps the film hold a box shape). The new packaging cuts 150 tons of paperboard
and allows more cookies to fit on a truck, saving fuel.

The Girl Scouts have been tinkering with the new lower-waste design for several years, but this year the packaging will be found on more varieties. The Lemonades, Thanks-A-Lot and Cranberry Citrus Crisps will be wrapped in the low-waste packaging.
