North Arlington, NJUSA

We decorated 1000 bags!

About our project: As a conservation project for the GFWC/North Arlinton Junior Woman's Club, I encouraged the local scouts and schools to decorate the bags which I received from the Lyndhurst Stop n Shop. The kids and teachers all enjoyed the project. Many teachers used the bags to teach recycling and reuse. The students where excited about going to the store on Earthday to get groceries in the bags they and their classmates had made!

Sussex Avenue School
Morristown, NJUSA

We decorated 325 bags!

About our project: Sussex Avenue School's Student Council worked to help educate our entire school body about the importance of recycling, reusing, and not wasting paper. Each grade had a theme to draw on their paper bags. Third grade theme was reuse, fourth grade was reduce, and fifth grade was recycle. We worked hard drawing things to match our grade's theme. Our bags were used at the local Acme Supermarket and customers seemed very pleased. It was an important, educational, fun Sussex School project!

Kate Hope
Ocean twp intermediate
Ocean, NJUSA

We decorated 300 bags!

About our project: We team teach at our middle school, so we made this project interdisciplinary. Students researched environmental information in science class, and trends and statistics in math class to put on their bags. In reading and language arts they wrote environmental poems and acrostics. The students as well as the teachers learned a lot and had fun. It was a great success.
