Joy Vickers
Huntingdon Primary School
Huntingdon, TN USA

We decorated 311 bags!

About our project: We designed grocery inserts because our stores in Huntingdon no longer use paper grocery sacks. The students came up with an Earth saving tip, wrote it on their insert, and decorated it. EW James is passing them out today to celebrate Earth Day!!! The children enjoyed it!!

Shayna S. Pou
The Baylor School
Chattanooga, TN USA

We decorated 250 bags!

About our project: We got started with this project a little late this year as I only found out about it one week prior to "Earth Day" week. My kids did an excellent job with the bags and with realizing why we were working on this project. They are starting to notice when things around campus are thrown out rather than recycled. That is a great step in the right direction!!! We had so much fun working on this project and the other projects we will be implementing in our school tomorrow. Next year we hope to triple our bag count. !!!
