We decorated 340 bags!
About our project: Our school, Kincaid Elementary, partnered with Burger’s Open Air Market, a local, family owned market, to participate in the 2017 Earth Day Groceries Project. This was our first year participating so we borrowed the bags and set it up an optional project for the teachers to do with their classes for Earth Day. We were thrilled to see how many classes participated and how much they enjoyed the project! The artwork was really creative with great messages and the store loved the decorated bags!
