1999 Earth Day Groceries Reports - Idaho
Shelley, ID 83274
Bags decorated: 500
What a wonderful experience! It began with my class of 25 and was shortly expanded to include the entire student body of 500. My class took it on as a project: learning about Earth Day and environmental problems, decorating their own bags first as models, creating a presentation to all the other classes, distributing and collecting the bags, taking the bags to our local Albertsons to hang and distribute, and finally taking a tour of the grocery store. The store manager contacted a local TV station who covered the event in 2 parts: videoing in my classroom as the kids decorated and interviewing two of the students, and videoing some of the sacks as they were being used on Earth Day. They also taped the whole school leaving to collect garbage around the city on Earth Day. The kids learned and enjoyed the project very much. I'll plan to do it again next year!

Great project. Kids loved it, so did the teachers.

Hello. Like to thank you for your work in organizing this event. We are
Hillcrest Elementary School in American Falls, Idaho (83211). We decorated
approximately 650 brown paper sacks, donated by Paper Bag Council of the
American Forest and Paper Association, and distributed them to 2
supermarkets in our small town (pop.-3500). The project was well received.
Bags decorated: 160
We had 2 second grades, a third grade and my fourth grade
decorate the bags. What a fun project!!!
The children learned the importance of recycling, and taking
care of the earth and their environment. We plan on doing it
again next year!!!

Nothing but positive response here at Longfellow. Our only
problem is that we wonder why we didn't think of it first!

1996 Earth Day Groceries Reports - Idaho
20 second graders attending Monroe Elementary will be decorating Earth Day
grocery bags this week. I have recycled them from trips to our local Co-op
and will be returning them there for distribution on Earth Day.
I'll check the Net for the final tally.
Thanks for the great idea.
