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.

Scarbro Head Start/ WVDEP
Fayetteville, WVUSA

We decorated 60 bags!

About our project: As the District Environmental Coordinator for the WV Department of Environmental Protection, I contacted the store to get the bags donated. I visited three Head Start classrooms to teach about Earth Day and had each student decorate a bag. I dropped the bags off to the store in time to distribute during Earth Week. The children had a wonderful time and the store manager can not wait to support this project again next year!

Girl Scout Troop 51107
Morgantown, WVUSA

We decorated 100 bags!

About our project: We purchased 100 grocery bags from Aldi and the girls decorated them with Earth Saving messages and pictures. We used stickers, markers and crayons! We then donated the bags back to Aldi so that they will give each customer a "Earth Day Bag" on Earth Day (customers at Aldi must purchase bags or bring their own. This counted also as a service project & fun project for our troop). The girls are hoping that customers will reuse the bags a few more times to help "save the earth"
