Patricia Waldo
Norfolk, VA USA

We decorated 900 bags!

About our project: Some of the students had never heard of Earth Day, so this hands-on activity was a great way to introduce them to the purpose of Earth Day as well as allow them the opportunity to teach others about this important day. The bags were so well decorated that the cashiers wanted to see and read each one before using them for packing groceries. This was such a great idea!

Katherine Elkins
Charles Barrett Elementary
Alexandria, VA USA

We decorated 220 bags!

About our project: A parent brought the project to my attention; we jumped on it immediately. On project day, I took at least 15 minutes to brainstorm with the students about Earth Day and all the areas that we could celebrate: Recycling, Conservation, Endangered Animals, Litter Control, Pollution... I provided construction-paper crayons since they produce such intense color on brown paper. The results were absolutely beautiful and we received many comments from the shoppers at Harris Teeter about how effective the message was!
