We decorated 25 bags!

About our project: Instead of the grocery bags, my class created bookmarks. With a delay in motor skills it was simpler for my kids to color in all the white in a smaller space of a bookmark. I find some free templates online I simply print out on cardstock then cut the bookmarks out. After the coloring was completed I laminated them and we passed them out at our school library.

Malvern, ARUSA

We decorated 800 bags!

About our project: We decorated 800 grocery bags provided by local grocer, Food Center of Malvern, and then placed them back in the store for customers to be made aware of Earth Day 2013. Public Service Announcements through local radio, tv, and newspaper helped make the community aware of this project.

Fulbright Elementary
Little Rock, ARUSA

We decorated 1000 bags!

About our project: This is our second year participating in this event. Because our enrollment so is large we split bags between 2 Kroger stores this year, 500 from each store. It was so fun to see the excitement of the grocery store workers when we dropped the decorated bags back off at the stores! This is a wonderful community based Earth Day project!

Annette Ortiz
Immaculate Conception School, North Little Rock
North Little Rock, ARUSA

We decorated 206 bags!

About our project: This project began as a fourth grade Science lesson, and soon spread to most of the elementary school. Two hundred and six students from grades Kindergarten and Second through fifth grades created two hundred six grocery bags for the Kroger Grocery store. The local paper, Arkansas Democrat Gazette, featured a story about the students' efforts in the local section of their paper on Earth Day. The students had a great time decorating the bags and spreading their important messages about Earth Day!
