County Public Library in Golden, Colorado had 19 children in grades
1-6 in attendance at our Earth Day Program. We decorated 26 bags which
we shared with friends and family to reuse on their trips to the grocery
store, since Colorado law restricts public use of "reused" bags in
our grocery stores. Pat Dolan, the manager of the local Safeway
grocery store, donated the bags for our use in this project. We
appreciate Safeway's willingness to support this educational program.
The kids brainstormed ways that we could be more respectful of our earth and
we read The Lorax by Dr. Seuss to remind us what an awesome responsibility
we have to take care of our beautiful world.
