Kimberly McCurnin
Unity Charter School
Morristown, NJ USA
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!
