Girl Scouts Participate in Fanwood Green Fair Today


FANWOOD, NJ - Fanwood Girl Scout Erin Hernandez is helping to organize the Fanwood Green Fair this Saturday to earn her Girl Scout Gold Award.

The Fanwood Green Fair aspires to educate the community on ways to incorporate environmentally sustainable lifestyle practices into their everyday lives. The event will take place on the front lawn of the Fanwood Borough Hall at 75 N Martine Avenue from 11:00 4:00 p.m. on Saturday, July 23.  The 17-year old Hernandez is going into her senior year at the Union County Academy for Performing Arts and has been in Girl Scouts since 1st grade.  

“The Girl Scout Gold Award is the highest achievement in Girl Scouting. I picked this Gold Award because I really care for the environment," Hernandez wrote in a statement about the project, "I believe that the environment gives us so much and we do not properly take care it.”

“Around 50 million tons of papers are consumed annually by Americans which mean more than 850 million trees are cut down. People just think that recycling is just a waste of time, but actually it helps give back what we have taken. Every ton of recycled office paper saves 380 gallons of oil."

Hernandez believes that the Green Fair will make more people be aware the importance of taking care of Fanwood. The Girl Scouts will also be hosting a table at the event. is Scotch Plains-Fanwood’s only free daily paper. Sign up for our daily eNews and follow us on Facebook and twitter @SPF_TAP.
