Pictures from 1998
Ironwood Elementary School in Phoenix, AZ

Students at Ironwood Elementary School in Phoenix, Arizona decorated grocery bags with pictures of the earth and Earth Day slogans to make the community more environmentally aware. Larry Latimer, Manager of the ABCO at 35th Avenue and Greenway, provided grocery bags for each student at Ironwood.  Around 650 bags were decorated and the bags were returned to ABCO where they were distributed on Wednesday April 22 to celebrate Earth Day.  This project helped students gain an increased awareness about Earth Day and the importance of environmental conservation.
