We decorated 20 bags!
About our project: We bought 20 cloth grocery bags. The girls decorated the bags with Earth Day stencils and silk screened mottos & symbols. They made a poster for display at the store. The morning of Earth Day, 2010, the bags & display were delivered. We asked the manager if the bags could be donated to those who might not otherwise buy a re-usable cloth bag, e.g., senior citizens, etc.. We spoke to the manager afterwards, and he said our project was a success, and that everyone who got a bag was delighted with the artwork the girls had done.

Mountain View Elementary
We decorated 300 bags!
About our project: 12 classrooms at our school volunteered to participate this year. Albertson's grocery store donated the bags. When we turned them in, they hung them up on the walls of the store before handing them out to customers. It was great to see our work displayed, and to know that the bags would be distributed around the community.

Mountain View Elementary School
We decorated 130 bags!
About our project: The first grade at Mountain View Elementary school decided to do something a little different for Earth Day. We got together to watch the Earth Day Groceries Power Point and the kids decided that they wanted to participate. Students looked through reports and pictures from schools all over the world who participated last year for ideas for their bags. Each first grade student completed at least one bag. The bags were offered to Smith's grocery store customers. They ran out before lunch time! The manager was thrilled to take part in this project. Overall it was a huge success and much more memorable than just reading and writing about Earth Day!
Look at our pictures!
