Girl Scout Cookies and Palm Oil

Hosted by

Good Food producer Gillian Ferguson accompanies 10-year-old Girl Scout Violet Paulsen while she sells cookies to her neighbors. She discovers a growing concern amidst the Girl Scouts over the use of palm oil in Girl Scout Cookies.

In 2007 Rhiannon Tomtishen and Madison Vorva, two scouts from Ann Arbor, Michigan, launched a campaign to educate consumers about palm oil in Girl Scout Cookies. They continue the campaign through their website Project Orangs. Watch their Tedx talk on the Good Food blog.
