Colorado Earth Day Groceries Reports - 1998
This year our school participated in the 1998 Earth Day Groceries
Project. Our students decorated about 150 grocery bags and gave them to our
local grocery store. This is our school's first year doing the project
although it has been going on for five years. Some of the students had fun
decorating their bags outside, but other classes were not able to because it
snowed. All the classes had fun decorating the bags with crayons and markers.
Our school had a lot of fun doing the project and we are looking forward to it
next year. We also encourage more schools to do this wonderful project!

Weldon Valley School is a K - 12 school on the eastern plains of Colorado.
For the past three years our entire school has "celebrated" Earth Day by
learning about our enviornment and also by picking up trash. This year as part
of our day, we decorated grocery sacks that were donated by the Safeway store
in Fort Morgan. We decorated approximately 80 bags.

My aide found this program on the internet and we decided to
go with it. She called our local grocery store and they donated
the grocery sack. The 3 classes participating decorated the bags
with earth day designs and we returned them to the store to be
given out with groceries in on earth day afternoon. The children
in one class enjoyed it so much that they each made another one to put
on construction paper to take home.
We did a total of 75 bags.

Thank you for being "the hub" of the 1995 Grocery Bags on Earth
Day project! The students at Mapleton Elementary School, a small one
hundred year old school in Boulder, Colorado, decorated 170 bags on April
17th. We returned our sacks to our neighborhood sponsor, Moe's Broadway
Bagels, on April 19th. What a marvelous project! People continue to
make great comments about those sacks full of bagels and their concern
for saving the Earth. Your suggestion made Earth Day very special for
us, and we hope for those who received the bags decorated by our children.

At S. Christa McAuliffe elementary School in Greeley, Colorado, we
decorated 480 grocery bags from one of our supermarkets in town. Not
only was the store incredibly pleased to help us out, they have gotten
wonderful comments as to the nature of this project. Thanks go to you
for heading this up!!
