Marshall W. Errickson Elementary School
We decorated 500 bags!
About our project: Our school has been participating in this project for a few years now. This project is a great way to introduce a short unit about how to make the world a better place by recycling, reducing waste and using reusable products. Student then put the knowledge they learn into decorating the paper bags. It gives student s a feeling of accomplishment and a chance to give back in a creative way. The staff and students find it to be a fun, easy project for any grade level. Many of our classes chose to work together with other grade levels to promote teamwork and collaboration.

Unity Charter School
We decorated 250 bags!
About our project: Our core mission at Unity Charter School is to prepare our students to learn how to live sustainablely on our planet in order to protect it for the future. Not only did we decorate grocery bags for ShopRite with messages teaching our community how to live more sustainablely, but all of our messages were created from upcycled materials (old cereal boxes, cardboard boxes, and more). In addition, we asked Shoprite to donate us REUSABLE grocery bags instead of paper or plastic ones. We are so grateful to ShopRite for helping us communicate the importance of "reusing" this Earth Day through this special partnership! We are proud to participate in this project! Happy Earth Day to all!

North Branch Reformed Church
We decorated 164 bags!
About our project: All of our children decorated a bag and were also taught about taking care of what God gave us by recycling, saving water, etc. We had several bags left over so we shared the idea with our preschool students also. It was a fun craft and can not wait to shop at our local Wegmans tomorrow.

We decorated 23 bags!
About our project: I have been participating in the Earth Day Grocery Bag Project for years, but this is the first time I have sent in my report. It is a wonderful way to teach my 3rd graders how to care for the environment by reusing a beautifully designed paper (biodegradable) bag with a powerful message for others to see & share.
