We decorated 2000 bags!
About our project: In 1999, we were the only school in Mexico participating in the project. This year, 2000 we invite four schools more and we decorate 2000 bags, one for each year. Discovery School's philosophy is full, of enviromental.We love this project and we will be inviting more schools for 2001, even though in Mexico there is no place that manufacture paper bags, that is why we have to continue supporting this project so the authorities and stores owners get conscius about using only non recyclable plastic bags. Please keep sending us paper bags. Thanks. Discovery School Children

We decorated 900 bags!
About our project: This is our second year participating, but because we want the community to really get involved and do something about our world, we invite 4 other schools to join us. All together we decorate 1850 bags. It was a success. In our country, Mexico ther is no supermarket using paper bags, only plastic, and they are not recycable. So we are talking to people involved in paper recycling and paper factories to see if they can offer to supermarkets paperbags at low cost. We will be telling everyone what is happening because it will be very important for our country. In our school, Discovery all the students were involved, the ones that are only 3 years old and also the nine graders. We invite some parents and all the staff and teachers to decorate their bags too. Mark, Thank you for sharing this project with us again. Diana Ramos. We will be sending the photos next week
