Eugene Coste Elementary
Calgary, ABCanada

We decorated 290 bags!

About our project: Our project started as a class activity related to an Earth Day project. We were really pleased that so many other classes wanted to participate also. Some of the art work was excellent. The kids were excited about taking their parents shopping on Earth Day at the local Safeway and Co-op. we found that the bags were a great way to open conversation about choices we can make when trying to conserve the environment.
