Mecklenburg County Park & Recreation Dept.
Charlotte, NCUSA

We decorated 1500 bags!

About our project: This was a countwide project, which we took to 13 schools and 18 recreation centers. The bags were given out at "Meck-Fest" which was the day before "Earth Day"."Meck-Fest" is a festival that allows the citizens of Mecklenburg County an opportunity to see how their county govt. works and have fun learning.With each bag given the receiver was asked to use the bag two more times.This gave "our" bags four times to be used! How's that for recycling?

South View Middle School
Hope Mills, NCUSA

We decorated 501 bags!

About our project: I am the Environmental Coordinator for my school and I wanted to involve as many students as possible in Earth Day. Students from 6th-8th grade participated by decorating grocery bags and then I delivered them back to Lowe's Food and they were passed out to customers on April 22,2001 [Earth Day]. The students loved taking an active role in the preservation of the Earth and to have their message heard and noticed. Thanks for doing this wonderful project!
