About our project: Our school used your project as part of Army Earth Day held at Lucas Elementary on April 19, 2002. The theme this year was "Protecting Our Freedom...Preserving The Environment." All environmental division employees at Ft. Campbell were invited to set up a hands-on activity display dealing with an environmental issue. There were over 35 displays exhibited this year. Examples included forestry, recyling, air quality, etc. More than 1100 students attended this event. Your grocery bag project was the contribution our school made to this annual event.

We decorated 570 bags!

About our project: My role was one of organizer. The classroom teachers did their own things with the bags. They were instructed to remind the students what Earth Day was about and connect the decorations to preserving Earth's resources; especially recycling and reusing.
