2009 Update: Unfortunately,
because of the amount of time required, we will no longer be able to
host pictures on this web site.
However, if you can find a place to put
your pictures on the Internet (like Flickr, a blog, or a wiki), we will
certainly link to them from here. Just
the web address.
New for 2008:
If you have video of your participation in The Earth Day Groceries
Project, it can also appear on this website. First, you'll have to
upload to a place like TeacherTube
or YouTube. Then let
Mark Ahlness know, and we'll
add it to this site. Thanks!

in mind that pictures will be resized to a maximum of about 700 pixels wide (or tall).
Send them as email attachments in .gif or

Please remember to include the name and location of your school in
If you would like to include a short message
to appear at the bottom of your picture page, just send it along with your
pictures. No individual captions please.
It's tough to estimate the exact length of time it
will take to get your pictures on the web site. Picture pages must
be created manually, so it takes some extra time. If you don't see
your school's pictures on the web site within a week of your sending
them, contact project manager Mark Ahlness.
We will also be very happy to link to Earth Day Groceries Project
pictures you have on your own web site! Email
us your web site address, and we'll add it to the
