Otken Elementary School

We decorated 300 bags!

About our project: We developed a partnership with Krogers. Students in the first grade , 280, decorated the paper bags with environmental messages and recycling pictures and or ideas. On Earth Day the bags were used by our Krogers, they did not use plastic bags during this day. Our bag project was one event in a week long Earth Day celebration. During 2003 we hope to increase our number of bags and invite other stores to take part.

About our project: Our students decorated over 300 bags, and they were distributed to local businesses. These businesses were happy to participate in Earth Day by using the colorful bags. Our students enjoyed decorating and adding ways to protect the earth on each bag. This was our first year to participate in this project, and we hope to do it again next year.
