Daphne Stieglitz
Okatie Elementary
Bluffton, SC USA

We decorated 135 bags!

About our project: Our 4th graders loved decorating their Earth bags to promote protecting our earth! The best part was going to Kroger and having their groceries bagged in bags that their classmates designed. We loved the project and plan to implement it in all the grades next year at Okatie Elementary!!

Look at our pictures!

Tephanie Green
Webber Elementary
Eastover , SC USA

We decorated 308 bags!

About our project: I have been trying to find a way for the students at Webber Elementary School to participate in a special project relating to Earth Day. I searched and searched until finally I saw this website and said Yeah! This is great! I spoke to all of the teachers and they agreed to participate. The grocery store managers were excited and thrilled to become a part of the project. The students worked hard and the pictures were outstanding. The customers of the stores were happy about the special messages the children wrote on the bags. One student wrote, "Don't throw your T.V. on the road!" I thought that was so cute. We can't wait until next year. Thanks for such a great idea.

Marisa Broadhead
Clifdale Elementary
Spartanburg, SC USA

We decorated 165 bags!

About our project: This was our fourth year to participate in this great project. As you most likely noticed, our participation was down from the past years, but the bags that I returned to the store were as creative as ever! The customers at the Cedar Springs Bi-Lo welcomed the bagging of their groceries in these delightful bags and were once again reminded of how important it is to care for our planet.

Linda Jennings
Bryson Elementary
Simpsonville, SC USA

We decorated 513 bags!

About our project: Teachers did various activities in addition to decorating the grocery bags. In Science Lab, we read and discussed the book, Dear Children of the Earth, by Schim Schimmel. Some students made posters of ways to save the Earth. Fifth graders brainstormed ways to reuse or recycle items that would normally be thrown away, and then they designed magazine ads for their new products. Creative ads included using old records as plates and a discarded snow ski as a snowboard/skate board/or scooter. The Media Center broadcast an Earth Day video throughout the week.
