Beth Gilbert
Lindley Elementary School
Greensboro, NC USA

We decorated 275 bags!

About our project: The teachers and students at Lindley Elementary were very enthusiastic about participating for the second year in a row in the Earth Day Groceries Project. This community service activity was a part of a school-wide week long Earth Day celebration. Last year the school received the Greensboro Beautiful Clean Campus Award for all of Guilford County as a result of their campus clean-up and community Earth Day/environmental awareness campaigns including the grocery project. They hope to continue the tradition every year.

Look at our pictures!

We decorated 10 bags!

About our project: We received this assignment after April 22nd from our homeschool academy. I work part time at a preschool, so we made the bags out of lunch bags and put treats in them for the kids there.

Nell Cordones
Maureen Joy Charter School
Durham, NC USA

We decorated 200 bags!

About our project: The enthusiasm of the students really came through in their artwork and although our local grocery stores were reluctant participants this year, they were thrilled with the bags when I delivered them.I expect they will be happy to participate next year! We culminated the project with an Earth Day Fair at our school where students planted flowers, made recycled paper and bird feeders, and much more. Next year we plan to invite a neighboring school to join us in this celebration and double the number of bags we create!
