We decorated 30 bags!

About our project: While listening to Kenny Loggins' "Conviction of the Heart," fifth graders decorated brown paper grocery bags with earth-conscious messages. They were used to pack groceries on Earth Day at the local Shop Rite.

Bridgewater, NJUSA

We decorated 164 bags!

About our project: All of our children decorated a bag and were also taught about taking care of what God gave us by recycling, saving water, etc. We had several bags left over so we shared the idea with our preschool students also. It was a fun craft and can not wait to shop at our local Wegmans tomorrow.

We decorated 23 bags!

About our project: I have been participating in the Earth Day Grocery Bag Project for years, but this is the first time I have sent in my report. It is a wonderful way to teach my 3rd graders how to care for the environment by reusing a beautifully designed paper (biodegradable) bag with a powerful message for others to see & share.
