About our project: This year, students at Marshall Street and Whitehall Elementary Schools in Norristown, PA, worked together across all grades, K-5, to decorate more than 600 bags.

St. Ambrose School
Schuylkill Haven, PA USA

We decorated 175 bags!

About our project: This was the first year that our school participated in the Earth Day Groceries Project, and it was an excellent way to promote environmental awareness. All grades (K to 8) designed a grocery bag, so 175 students were able to share Earth Day messages with the community! Their creativity and environmental concerns were very impressive. Giant Food Stores of Cressona (PA) cooperated with our school in this fun and worthwhile project. We plan on making this a part of our annual Earth Day lessons and celebration.
