We decorated 500 bags!

About our project: Earth Day 2007 was a beautiful sunny day. Acme store shone with Heritage students' beautiful artwork on grocery bags. Bags were displayed in the windows and dispersed with grocery purchases. Thanks to Mark Windish, the store manager, who supplied us with the bags. Students try to make every day an Earth Day.

Susan Lopez
George Read Middle School
New Castle, DE USA

We decorated 165 bags!

About our project: My students were very excited to spread the word about protecting the earth. Sometimes young people don't feel like their efforts make a difference, but with the "Earth Day Grocery Bags" project my students were given a chance to really contribute to the cause of protecting the earth. Our local grocery store was very generous and supportive to our school. They gave us aa many bags as we needed and then they posted some of them in their store on Earth Day. I am very proud of my students for the amount of thought and effort they put into this project. Thank you for providing me with this unique way to get my studnets involved.
