North Carolina Earth Day Groceries Reports - 1998
Thanks to our local Food Lion we decorated 292 bags for Earth Day.
Our students had a great time and were very creative. One class used a
computer program to create pictures to glue on their bags. We enjoyed
participating and hope to be part of this project next year.

Greetings from Woodfin Elementary School in Asheville, NC. We participated
in the Earth Day Groceries Project for the third year in a row, and once
again, it was a huge success. Every student in our school decorated at
least one grocery bag for a total of around 300. Our local television
station filmed us decorating our bags one day at school, and we made the
6:00 news. On the Saturday before Earth Day, fifth-graders actually worked
at the grocery store explaining the project to customers, bagging
groceries, and spreading the Earth Day messages. Our local newspaper
covered the story on Saturday. We had pizza afterwards to celebrate the
success of the project. Thank-you for sharing it with us!

Happy Earth Day from Brentwood Elementary in Fayetteville, NC. This was our
first time to participate in the Earth Day Grocery Bag Project. Brentwoood PTA
and Ms. Simpson, the art teacher distributed the bags. The children decorated
369 beautiful bags for Food Lion on Raeford Rd. We delivered the bags to Food
Lion and had children read their Earth Day reports with the media taping.
Thank you for sharing this project with us. What a wonderful way to establish
communication between the community and our schools.

bags displayed at Lowes Food. Thank you for coorindating this project.

My 25 second graders decorated 32 grocery bags with Earth Day logos. They
thought up catchy slogans and drew pictures depicting nature scenes. One
of my students father owns a convenience store and he provided, and
distributed, the completed bags for us. Our school is in a rural area of
the mountains of NC and since it is such a small community I feel that
the children's bags will make an impression on their friends and
neighbors in the community.
We also got the third grade class to participate in the project and
they decorated 27 bags.
It was a great idea and hopefully will have a positive impact on our
I hope this is not too late for the list.
15 classes at Lead Mine Elementary in Raleigh, NC decorated 375 bags for
Earth Day. Teachers participated in the project on a voluntary basis.
Maybe next year we can get the whole school involved.
We would like to thank our local Kroger for lending us the
bags to decorate. Teachers, students, and the gorcery store really
enjoyed participating in this project. Our students did some super bags.
