Discovery School
Cuernavaca, Mexico

We decorated 2500 bags!

About our project: Last year the project was a success, so we decide this year to decorate more bags so everyone that shoped on April 22 was able to receive one. This is why we invite parents to decorate bags in our school. We had a whole week full of parents, even grandparents coming and going from Discovery to decorate their bags. We also invite the Major of our city to decorate one. Then our students went to Mega Comercial Mexicana the Grocery Store to help packing in the earthdaybags. Children from all grades went and as they packed they talk with the shoppers and invite them to reuse their bags. We made a very big sign of twelve ways to reuse the decorate earthdaybag. For advertising the project we did a TV interview in the local channel and two in the radio. It was a great experience and our students want to continue this project.

Colegio Ingles
Monterrey, Mexico

We decorated 1000 bags!

About our project: This is the frist time our school is involved in this project. We are very proud to be part of it now. In Mexico paper bags aren't used for packing groceries, it's more expensive than plastic bags here. When we found out about this project we really got excited. We talked to students about the importance of recycling and the importance of using paper bags for groceries. Our students decorated bags with enthusiasm and we all took the bags to local grocery stores. Students happily helped pack groceries and gave a personal message to cutomers about the importance of recycling. With this good start we hope to encourage our community to recycle and reuse as much as possible to help our only home, the earth.
