Northampton Township Parks & Recreation
Richboro, PA USA

We decorated 180 bags!

About our project: On Sunday, April 27, Northampton Township Parks & recreation held its first Earth Day Celebration. As part of the festivites, we incorporated the Grocery Bag Project. Two weeks prior, flyers were sent throught the various elementary schools sking children to decorate grocery bags for reuse & recycle with their Earth Day ideas. Some classes did them as a group project, others, individually. On Earth Day at our celebration, a table was set up with stickers, markers, crayons, etc for the children to decorate with their Earth Day message. Local teenagers from the High School Ley Club were on hand to help the youngsters and also provide some fresh ideas. Bags were then delivered on the next Monday to Shop'N'Bag, Richboro for distribution to their customers. We thank them for their support.
