 The Go Green Foundation today announced that it is teaming up with Girl Scouts of Northern California to expand the Spare Our Planet interschool competition to more than 50,000 Bay Area students – an increase of ten times the program’s present size. The Girls Scouts of Northern California, with more than 47,000 members, will join the Go Green Challenge campaign to engage their high schools from around the country to reduce their personal carbon footprint.
