Park Elementary School
Kearney, NEUSA

We decorated 334 bags!

About our project: Our school system began a Green School Initiative last year. Challenges are issued for every month. Earth Day is the focus for the month of April. As I researched for activities I found the Earth Day Groceries Project. It is a fabulous idea, totally a win-win! No waste, no extra production and it is just a smile on everyone's face when they see the art. We are so thankful for the partnership with Grand Central Apple Market! Thank you for this great project!!

About our project: In addition to the home room Earth Day Bag Decorating Contest, we also purchased the rights to show the documentary "Plastic Paradise" in our school auditorium on Earth Day. A Bag Monster will be present at the screening to generate disgust and we will encourage students to sign a pledge.

We decorated 200 bags!

About our project: This is the second year our school has participated in this project. The students all love to decorate the bags with Earth Friendly messages. They also enjoyed making the parents go shopping and asking for paper instead of plastic to collect their artwork!

We decorated 200 bags!

About our project: Our 2nd grade classes were getting ready to go to the zoo to study about animals. So in addition to talking about ways to help animals, we discussed ways to help the Earth. This project was a great way to allow the students to take part in something hands-on to help the Earth. While decorating the bags several classes played "What a Wonderful World" in the background.

Look at our pictures!
