About our project: The students at Dowell were thrilled to be able to contribute in telling the community how important it is to think before you just throw away certain items. We had almost every single student in the third, fourth and fifth grade participate!! We can't wait until next year!

Melvian Carlan
Jasper Elementary
Japer, GA USA

We decorated 478 bags!

About our project: Mrs. Dendia Chastain and I coordinated making bookmarks to distribute to the library. We did bookmarks in lieu of bags since the grocery store that we contacted would not use bags that had been handled. The bookmarks worked great. They were easier for our first grade students to decorated. We enjoyed this project as part of our Earth Day activities.

Courtney Johnson
Kilough Elementary
Dawsonville, GA USA

We decorated 209 bags!

About our project: This is Kilough's first year as a new school. Education majors from North Georgia College and State University helped organize the grocery bag project at Kilough. Students were very excited about sending their Earth Day messages to our local Ingles grocery store for our community to see. Students also planted flowers and participated in other Earth Day activities, which made Kilough's first Earth Day a success!
