We decorated 100 bags!

About our project: We purchased 100 grocery bags from Aldi and the girls decorated them with Earth Saving messages and pictures. We used stickers, markers and crayons! We then donated the bags back to Aldi so that they will give each customer a "Earth Day Bag" on Earth Day (customers at Aldi must purchase bags or bring their own. This counted also as a service project & fun project for our troop). The girls are hoping that customers will reuse the bags a few more times to help "save the earth"

We decorated 175 bags!

About our project: We worked in conjunction with the school betterment committee to provide the children with the bags, and had them ready the day before Earth Day to be delivered to the store to be used for customers. The kids had a great time! This store, Krogers, is always happy to help with this kind of project for the school children. We were very pleased with the result. We also supplied the children with the coloring books provided through this site. They were to get them today to help educate about creating a GREEN WORLD. Thank you for this opportunity.

We decorated 500 bags!

About our project: The Earth Day grocery bags project was a whole-school effort by our Kindergarten through 5th grade students at Steenrod ELementary. Our teachers did their part by introducing the project through mini-units on environmental topics and Earth Day awareness. Over the course of a week, our students decorated 500 recycled paper bags with Earth-friendly messages and original artwork. The bags were delivered to our local Kroger store by a small group of students, a teacher, and two of our parents. The local TV news station and newspaper were contacted in advance so they could take photos for the April 22nd editions.
