Brentwood Elementary
Lake Charles, , LA USA

We decorated 20 bags!

About our project: Our students read the book and watched the movie about THE LORAX by Dr. Seuss. They were so moved by the Lorax's fight to " save the trees" that they decided to send our community a message as well. They went to your website to get ideas, went to the library, and worked individually and in cooperative groups to create their messages. The local Kroger store donated the brown bags for our project. Everyone had a great time and learned a valuable lesson about saving the environment one person at a time.

We decorated 75 bags!

About our project: As part of our Earth Day project we got brown grocery bags from Mac's Big Star so the girls could decorate the bags with an Earth Day theme. Then we returned the bags and asked the store to help us spread the word about Recycling and Saving our planet. They used the bags to put groceries in and help us show others the importance of Saving our Planet.

We decorated 300 bags!

About our project: The local stores donated bags for our 5th and 6th graders to decorate and return. They were more than eager to help in this school project. The teachers were able to incorporate this project into their lessons. The students enjoyed this project and learned about keeping our Earth clean in the process. It was a huge success and the student's returned to school on the following Monday saying that they had seen the bags at several stores in town.
