Mary Louise Rodgers
Golden Valley School
Val d'Or, QC Canada

We decorated 200 bags!

About our project: This is the second year we have participated in the Grocery Bag Project for Earth Day. We hit a near-glitch this year when our participating store did not receive their paper bag order! One of the palettes had gone missing and it was the one with their paper bags. This little mishap shortened our project time considerably, but everyone managed to get at least one bag painted. The local newspaper photographer took a picture of a few of our students at the Loblaws store when we dropped off the bags on the 21st. Apparently there were many positive comments by the shoppers on Earth Day and we have been invited to participate with the same store next year. I think some students have already starting planning their artwork for next year. I saw them checking out some of the great work on this year's bags!

Look at our pictures!

About our project: Our entire school, pre kindergarten to grade 6, celebrated Earth Day by participating in the Earth Day Grocery Bag Project. We decorated our grocery bags with environmental messages in French and English. A special thanks to Metro Plus, Marche Bellemare, at 2121 Boul. Lapiniere in Brossard, Quebec for supporting our school comminity in this project. St. Jude students will continue to sensitize others to the importance of preserving the environment.

Suzanne Gionet
Pierre Elliott Trudeau Elementary School
Vaudreuil-Dorion, QC Canada

We decorated 433 bags!

About our project: This is my sixth year participating in this project. We have increased our number of bags to 433! I am really proud of the kids in our school. Everyone at Pierre Elliott Trudeau Elementary participated in decorating bags and writing bilingual Logos. This year, we made two banners and five posters. One banner was posted at Loblaws Grocery Store, along with two posters. The other banner stayed in our school, as well as two posters. We also sent a poster and some bags to our school board. We would like to send many thanks to Loblaws Grocery Store who ordered extra bags for us! The manager told me that the customers were impressed with our work. Thank you for keeping this project alive.

Look at our pictures!
