About our project: Fort Belvoir, VA: Specific Fairfax County Schools: This is our 5th year participating in the Earth Day Grocery Bag Project. This year, children from three neighboring schools decorated a total of 1,920 bags. This was a joint project between the Fort Belvoir Commissary, Fairfax County Schools, Partners In Education, and the Directorate of Installation Support. These bags were decorated beautifully with much thought, creativity and concern for the environment. On Earth Day, they were distrubuted by the Commissary here at Fort Belvoir, for customers to appreciate. The students and the Commissary patrons fully enjoyed the project. Thank you children for your participation in this Earth Day Grocery Bag Event and for helping make all of us a little more aware that it is the responsibility of each and every one of us to help protect our environment!

About our project: Earth Day 2000 Report From Robious Elementary Midlothian, Virginia Wow! Talk about fun in education! All students in our school participated in the Earth Day Grocery Bag project, thanks to our Art teacher, Helena Agnew. Mrs. Agnew incorporated this project into her art program for the first two weeks in April, to be sure each student completed a bag. If a child was sick, she sent the bag home! Mrs. Agnew ordered soy crayons and permanent markers so the markers would not run when wet. When we looked at the Standards of Learning that applied to this project, we found that each grade level met the SOLs for science and art. We had a great write-up in the local paper, picture of the kids coloring and all! The article included the other local schools participating and the state statistics. We thank the Paper Bag Council for the donated bags and posters. Our bags would not have been as pretty with Hannaford’s advertising along side the beautiful pictures the children drew. This was a great partnership between the community and our school. The Hannaford customers were pleasantly surprised to be reminded that it was Earth Day, and to receive such beautiful bags. Your website made “child’s play” of this extraordinary project. For that, the Robious Elementary PTA thanks you!
