An interview with the girls at Girls Go Green

Today I wanted to tell you about a great group of girls from Seattle who are blogging for a greener world and working to create a positive change in the world!

I "met" Anna of Girls Go Green through blogs and then she requested to have their eco site listed amongst the Friends of FatBottomBags!  If you aren't a follower of Girls Go Green, you'll definately want to be! 
Girls Go Green is 4 girls who go to a tiny girls school in Seattle.  The girls started their blog last year when they were 11 and 12 years old.  Now at 12 and 13 they are blogging about living a green teen lifestyle!

I sent the girls a few questions to learn more about them and their green efforts.  Here's that interview:

     FBB: How did you girls decide to go green?

     GGG:  The school had scratch paper bins around the school for paper that had been used but was still usable, but nobody really used them. We sorted the paper in the scratch paper bins and in the recycling into scratch paper and recycling. We decided to start a green club at our school and that a blog would be nice to have. The school year was almost over so the club never happened, but the blog certainly did!

     FBB: What is your goal for your blog?
     GGG: To encourage other girls to make an effort at being green.

     FBB:  How have Girls Go Green influenced their peers to make better choices for the future of the earth?

     GGG: We have encouraged out classmates to use scratch paper and compost.

     FBB: Do you find most of the kids your age are thinking about how we are affecting the planet with our decisions?

     GGG: There are some, but not really.

     FBB: What's your best green tip for other young people who want to make a difference in the world?

     GGG: Make an effort to do little green things. It's the little things that count!

     FBB: Do you think adults are receptive to your green message?

     GGG:  We think that they care more that we're kids actually doing something, not really about what what we are doing. They don't really believe that we are going to actually accomplish anything.

I'm so impressed with these girls and all of their green efforts! I hope all you readers will join me in following their blog and encouraging them to keep working to create positive changes!
