About our project: Our students always look forward to making the Earth Day Grocery Bags. They feel that it is the chance to teach their community that we need to protect their city, as well as the Earth. The Giant Eagle customers absolutely adore the bags. Even the employees look forward to reading them!

Carol Ford
N. Ridgeville Education Center
N. Ridgeville, OH USA

We decorated 270 bags!

About our project: Began our study with visiting your website as an introduction and made a flyer that went home with every child explaining the details. We had an "Earth Protectors" play which introduced the children to environmental concerns. We read many stories and visited websites, some of which were interactive sites. The children were absolutely thrilled and so excited to participate. "Mr. Dave" at N. Ridgeville TOPS grocery store was so excited and supportive! He even asked for decorated bags ahead of time to hang around the store. On his own, he put up a sign advertising our Earth Day project(included with our pictures). Parents and children went to TOPS that day to participate in the project. I encouraged them to seek out the manager,Dave, and tell him how much they appreciated his participation in the project. I encouraged the children to continue to use the paper bags when they went back to the store. One of my children was so excited after the project, he made a recycling bin in his bedroom! If anyone can make a difference, our kindergarteners will! Thanks for the great idea!
