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.

We decorated 400 bags!

About our project: As students at Eglin Elementary School learned about Earth Day, they put their artistic skills to work. The Eglin Commissary provided the school with 400 brown bags to decorate with pictures and Earth Day slogans. These designs were created by students in grades K-4 and returned to the store for customers to receive when shopping on Earth Day, April 22, and the days following. Reminding the community the importance of the 3 Rs (Reduce, Reuse, Recycle) and taking care of our planet is what the Earth Day Grocery Bag Project is all about.

We decorated 731 bags!

About our project: My daughter, Charlotte, is in kindergarten at Tanglewood Elementary School. Her teacher, Mrs. Prysi, assigned her students a community Earth Day project. Charlotte and I chose to participate in the Earth Day Groceries Project. We went to our local Publix and they graciously let us borrow 800 brown paper bags. The students of Tanglewood truly enjoyed decorating their bag with an Earth Day message. We ended up with 731 decorated bags! What a fun experience! We hope the customers also enjoy their bags and will consider reusing them!
