Cookies Power Amazing Adventures for Girls

When you buy a box of delicious Girl Scout Cookies, you’re powering amazing, year-round experiences for every G.I.R.L. (Go-getter, Innovator, Risk-taker, Leader) extraordinaire in your community who sells them—that’s right, proceeds stay local and are reinvested in girls!

Big picture: as a cookie customer, you’re actually helping the next generation of female entrepreneurs get an important taste of what it takes to be successful—teamwork, planning, and a positive outlook. Beyond that, you’re actually narrowing the gender gap in entrepreneurship by nurturing girls’ skills early and often. How awesome is that?

Whether it’s a trip to a breathtaking place she’s never been, a STEM (science, technology, engineering, and math) project that will change the way she thinks about the world, or an opportunity to attend Girl Scout camp and revel in the power of the great outdoors, at Girl Scouts every experience helps her unleash her  G.I.R.L. spirit to do amazing things for herself and her community and grow into the incredible woman she’s destined to become.

But wait, there’s more! By selling cookies, girls develop five essential skills—goal setting, decision making, money management, people skills, and business ethics—all of which help them succeed today and in the future. They grow their confidence and practice leadership, too.

What an experience! That’s why the Girl Scout Cookie Program focuses on her—because it’s about so much more than delicious treats. It’s about supporting girls’ success through the biggest girl-led entrepreneurial program in the world—SWEET!

When you buy Girl Scout Cookies during the Girl Scout Cookie Sale, you're helping local programs for local girls. Our girls are leading the way, as they invest money from their own cookie sales back into service projects across Kansas!

Our Cookie Packages Support Sustainability

ABC Bakers supports and encourages new ways to improve sustainability. And the Girl Scout Cookie packages already make a major impact. By taking the Thanks-A-Lot Girl Scout Cookie “out of the box,” 150 tons of paperboard are saved each year from entering America’s wastestream. And more cookies could fit on trucks, saving an estimated 2,600 gallons of diesel fuel a year.

Buoyed by positive volunteer and consumer response, ABC continues packaging Thanks-A-Lot Girl Scout Cookies in recyclable film and has expanded this packaging approach to Lemonades cookies and Cranberry Citrus Crisps, resulting in a combined reduction of more than 300 tons of paperboard per season. ABC is the only Girl Scout Baker offering this Eco-Friendly Packaging.

Our Packages Also Tell a Story!

Rather than simply showing girls having fun, the Girl Scout Cookie package designs give customers a more complete look at the Girl Scout Leadership Experience. Packages showcase badges, skills learned in the Cookie Program, the Gold Award, and how girls spend their cookie proceeds!
