We decorated 1200 bags!

About our project: We got grocery bags donated from both Kroger stores in Conway. Then we distributed these to interested teachers at 3 local elementary schools. The children decorated them and then we picked them back up. We displayed them at our Earth Day Festival and then tried to give them back to the stores who didn't want them! Instead we use them in our organization in fundraisers, shopping bags for our fundraising items, and more. They have been very helpful! We also posted a few designs to our website. I think the program is a great one, but for someone outside the schools it is hard to find interested teachers! We did use the local Newspapers in Education person at our newspaper, the Log Cabin Democrat, to help us in this way. We had a lot of fun with the program, but for 2006 we are simply taking them to the Boys and Girls Club to get about 100 decorated.

We decorated 452 bags!

About our project: Once again, we culminated our Earth Day unit by decorating bags for the Earth Day Grocery Bag Project. This year all students in kindergarten through sixth grade participated and 452 bags were decorated. Cranford's, our local community grocery store, shared their bags with us and they will be distributed to shoppers on Earth Day. As usual, we had a great time!
