Sarah Harkey
Crowders Creek Complex
Clover, SC USA

We decorated 500 bags!

About our project: This is our third year participating in the Grocery Bags Project. I just love to see the creative messages the students come up with! The students are so very excited about seeing their messages at the grocery store also. I think it is a very effective way to spread messages of concern about our Earth into the community. Hopefully, we will change habits and attitudes towards pollution, littering, recycling, and conservation.
