Nova Scotia Earth Day Groceries Reports - 1998

The 321 students at New Germany Elementary School, Nova Scotia, Canada have decorated 500 grocery bags, These bags have been used during the past week at our community's grocery store and were a big hit. We even had a photo taken and a write-up in our local paper. Our superintendent thought it was a great idea, too.

Hi! We would like to add our results to your tally for 1998. The students at Inverness Elementary School in Inverness, Nova Scotia Canada decorated 316 paper bags for their Earth Day Project this year.There are 270 students from Primary to Grade 6 in this school. The staff and students were very excited about this project and Bonny Dixon was the coordinator of the project and wanted to prove how quickly a project of this type could be done. From start to finish in organizing this project we only had three days and this was the result of our effort. I also took pictures as well the local paper took photos and they were the talk of the community today when consumers went shopping. What a great idea. If any more information is required you can contact me Bonny Dixon at the address below. The students are really excited about seeing their results listed on your site.

Our school participated - Atlantic View Elementary on the Atlantic Ocean inNova Scotia. 193 bags were given out - one per student, grades primary to 5.
Biggest problem was finding a grocery store that used ANY paper bags. Great idea. Counts towards our environmental SEEDS project too! Nancy Barkhouse Atlantic View Elementary
