On Wednesday, April 14th, St. John the Baptist School decorated
grocery bags with an Earth Day theme. The bags were handed out to lucky
shoppers who bought groceries at the Thriftway in Sellwood. Students took
markers, crayons, and colored pencils, and drew pictures on the bags. Many
of the students put a slogan on it like, "Save Our Earth." Every student
attending St. John the Baptist school had the opportunity to decorate two
grocery bags. The older students helped the younger students work on their
All the students and teachers enjoyed working together. Matt, an
8th grade student, said, "I liked doing the bags for Earth Day because it
reminds people how important the Earth really is."

We had two 3rd grade classes and one 4th grade class that decorated bags from the local Safway.
Many consumers had great things to say about the idea and were very very impressed with the art work the students created. The manager that was not so happy with the idea in the beginning was throughly pleased with the bags.:-) I believe next year our numbers will be higher.

Thank-you for this project. The children had a wonderful time and it was a great idea. Teachers and administrators thought the idea was terrific!
What a great project! We had a ball doing it and have had great support from
the kids and teachers. I took some photos this morning for the local paper
and will try to get them to you all for the site. Thank you for developing
this idea. We are already thinking of ways to make this even better for our
community next year. Please keep me posted on any other projects you guys
have going. Our kids are really excited about this!

Uncertain Location Earth Day Groceries Reports - 1998
I'm just reporting in to tell you that our first Earth Day celebration
was a big success. The children had a great time and the teachers were
very complimentary. Several asked to borrow materials I had collected
to enhance their lesson plans. Giant, our local grocer, distributed all
the bags on Earth Day and said that the response from parents of
Liberty-Valley students was overwelming. The event was covered by two
of the local newspapers. The children were thrilled to get the
materials you sent (the pogs were a big hit!). Thanks again for all
your support. I hope to make this an annual event and hopefully I'll be
contacting you next year.
Thanks again---Pam Kreis
Was just luck I found your web site with this great idea. Thanks and
yes, will want to do again next year. Kindergarten through sixth grade
students, approximately 300, decorated donated grocery sacks with
environmental pictures and slogans. Generated lots of discussion about
what WE can do to conserve our earth. Decorated sacks were given to
local grocery stores.

Our school started the project very late, but we are proud of the
number of bags that we decorated. My class asked our science teacher, Ms.
Thead if we could be in charge of submitting this information to the web site.
The following paragraph was written by Ms. Loeber's fourth grade.
At Simpson Elementary School we decorated 344 grocery bags from Publix and Winn
Dixie with fun Earth Day pictures and phrases. We made Happy Valentine Day
bags into Happy Earth Day bags. We returned the grocery bags to the store so
that we could share our knowledge with the community.

the bags and returning them to the store with their very own unique slogans and
pictures. We will keep you posted. We are also enclosing a seed packet so the
customers can go home and continue thinking about the earth as they dig in the

This project is a great idea! My school will be joining the
effort to "get the word out." We are decorating 400 grocery bags. They
will be distributed to the store this afternoon--and handed out tomorrow
with groceries in them. The children had a good time with it--their bags
Thank you for allowing us to join your effort!

In our school, Woodfin Elementary, every student decorated at least
one grocery bag for a total of 300. On Earth Day, several fifth-graders
went to the grocery store and actually bagged groceries for the customers.
This project was a lot of fun for everyone, and we plan to participate
again next year. Thank-you for sharing the idea with us.
The results of my making Earth Day grocery bags were only 30 bags, but as a
result great feelings between the store and the school I work for were
established ( the store LOVED them).
Thanks for the great Earth Day art activity,

Mark, Our project here at Indian Heights Elementary went very well!
We involved the whole school and everyone decorated at least two
bags. It seemed to be very well accepted by those participating in
the project. We had a total of 953 bags! Looking forward to hearing
from you with the total nation-wide. Great project!
