Educational Value

Our children had a wonderful time doing the project and learned timely lessons on community service and environmental recycling.

It was a school-wide team day project, where kids gathered in multi-age teams to complete the task of decorating two bags each for Earth Day.

Grocery Participation

The Albertson’s store manger was enthusiastic and welcomed us! He then let the children go to the produce area and pick out one piece of fruit to eat on our trip back to school.

-- Woodcrest Preschool, Newbury Park, CA

The manager had the bags hung like banners around the store the weekend before Earth Day. Customers can request them for Earth Day and after. The visual effect of decorated bags suspended on high has gained the attention of even the casual shopper. -- Naval Avenue Elementary School, Bremerton, WA

The children so enjoy doing this and our Eagles store says the customers love them.

-- Raymond Marquith School, East Galesburg, IL

We also decorated a large banner to hang in our Shop-n-Save grocery store that promoted the Earth Day Groceries Project.

The manger and staff of Stratford Market were very supportive... They will be passing out the decorated bags to their customers and announcing over the PA system the purpose of our project.

Community Relations

Our local newspaper came and took a picture for the newspaper The Daily Journal. We also displayed our project at the "Showcase of Kankakee Schools" at a nearby mall.

-- Lafayette School, Kankakee, IL

Students will deliver the bags this Friday and our local newspaper, The Hattiesburg American will be there to take pictures.

Creative Project Ideas

(Field trips to the grocery store, neighborhood cleanups, artwork contests, challenges to other schools, bag inserts)

We worked with our local Kroger store. The children took a field trip to the store to deliver the grocery bags in person.
