Proudly Made in the USA

Girl Scout Merchandise (GSM) continues to honor its commitment to USA-made products and to strive to keep its carbon footprint as small as possible. Girl Scout vests, sashes, tunics, and insignia are all currently produced in this country, and we are reaching out to more vendors that have capabilities to produce stateside. In addition, beginning in July, Daisy, Brownie, Junior, and Cadette badge production will take place in the United States. The fabric, thread, iron-on backing, and packaging are all produced in America. The USA-made product will be available to start shipping in July 2017.

In order to offer the USA-made product, there will be an increase to the pricing structure. The new retail price on Daisy, Brownie, Junior, and Cadette badges will be $3.00, effective July 1, 2017.
