Islandia, NY USA

We decorated 138 bags!

About our project: The preschoolers in our program decorated 138 bags. Each class did it a little differently, some used crayons, others used markers or paint and all the bags came out beautifully. Many of the children had their parents take them to the grocery store to see if they could find their bag. All in all everyone enjoyed the project and it sent out a great message to everyone involved.

Look at our pictures!

Spring Valley, NY USA

We decorated 42 bags!

About our project: We read a book about Earth Day and how it began. Then we learned what people can do to help. The girls learned that even as young as they are, they can help in many ways. They felt proud that they could be educators for adults through their decorating shopping bag project.

Lesley Leo
Mills Pond Elementary
Saint James, NY USA

We decorated 475 bags!

About our project: This was the first year our school participated in the project and it was a complete SUCCESS! My class coordinated the project for Mills Pond Elementary School. They researched Earth Day and environmental issues and presented what they learned to the other classes. Then the teachers took over from there and helped the students decorate the bags. A group of my students joined me at Waldbaums on Earth Day to see the project in full force. The decorated grocery bags were thoughtful and quite inspiring. We could hear the responses from the shoppers and the students felt good knowing they made an impact. It was really great to see their efforts being recognized by the community. The children really learned a lot and enjoyed this project. I'd like to thank our principal, Mrs. Wild, and our local Waldbaum's store for their support.
