Amanda Seibel
Har-Mer Elementary School
Harrisville, PA USA

We decorated 200 bags!

About our project: As an Earth Day Project to connect the school with the surrounding communities, myself along with another Student Teacher felt that the Grocery Project was a wonderful way to do so. I contacted the manager of the local Giant Eagle and he happily agreed to participate. As well as the five elementary teachers at the very rural and small Har-Mer Elementary School. Once the bags were completed we dropped them off at Giant Eagle and they disappeared quickly. The community really loved the project. GREAT IDEA!!!!

Donna Graff
Albany Elementary School
Kempton, PA USA

We decorated 115 bags!

About our project: Every year we have the school's annual Earth Day celebration. This year I saw about having the kids decorate grocery bags. So we had them do this at one of our stations. We had a note about the grocery bag project that we had the children attach to the one side of the bag while they decorated the other side with environmental messages & pictures. Then the next day, Saturday, we had the one mom who works at the grocery store, take the bags back to the store. Then on Earth Day the cashiers made sure each customer got one bag with the environmental message from out school on. This was a definite hit, something that we may repeat year after year! Donna G.

We decorated 54 bags!

About our project: We had a blast creating these bags and Price Chopper was very happy to work with us. We also put persuasive letters inside of each bag, hoping that the shoppers will reduce, reuse, and recycle.
