Brookview Elementary School
Atlanta, GAUSA

We decorated 203 bags!

About our project: Students from 1st, 2nd and 4th grade participated in the Earth Day Bag project as part of a month-long study of environmental education. Through our research, we are learning about protecting the environment, and we are seeing how technology can be used to connect us with other people around the world!

Savannah, GAUSA

We decorated 1663 bags!

About our project: We enjoyed promoting Earth Day with the children in our Before & After School Program, Pryme Tyme. The children decorated the bags with crayons, paint,glitter, etc. and then we distributed those bags to four of our local Publix grocery stores. We also made contact with our local Farmer's Market and their vendors utilized the bags at the market to promote Earth Day too. This was a fun project for the children and it was good to see the thought that some of the children put into their bag's design. Thank you for such a wonderful project! The Publix store managers were made aware of this project through our efforts. We hope to continue this project from year to year.

Dawnville Elementary
Dalton, GAUSA

We decorated 155 bags!

About our project: Dawnville Elementary School students had a great time in participating this year. This was the first year in many years that Dawnville participated in Earth Day Groceries Project. I felt that it was successful since we prepared weeks in advance. I had picked up the bags from the store in March which gave the teachers plenty of time to allow their students to participate. Hopefully, we will be doing this every year.

Keep Pickens Beautiful
Jasper, GAUSA

We decorated 2200 bags!

About our project: Keep Pickens Beautiful coordinates this event with 5 grocery stores and 2 local pharmacies. All elementary school students (public and private) participate and 804 middle and high school students participate in this project. We send an article and picture to the paper before Earth Day, laminite copies of the article for the schools and stores, then we print the certificate and mount it in a frame for all schools and stores. It is very well received.
