We decorated 500 bags!

About our project: By participating in the Earth Day Groceries Project, Luis Munoz Marin School helped promote environmental awareness in our community. In this activity, 4th-6th graders decorated large, paper grocery bags with drawings and environmental messages. The general manager at Stop & Shop displayed a lot of the bags inside the store and will also be bagging groceries with the decorated bags to their customers.

We decorated 100 bags!

About our project: I am a grade 2 teacher at Betances Elementary in Hartford CT. We decorate the paper grocery bags with information for Earth Day, and pictures on the bags. All the students enjoyed writing and drawing these wise words. I handed the bags out to the grade 2 teachers and two Kindergarten classes. When we were done I brought the bags back to the store to hand out to their customers on earth day.
