How to Participate 4/8/18

Earth Day is on April 22nd. There is still time to get involved and participate!
(Reposted from 3/16/18, with new pictures)

Here's a brief rundown on what's involved in participating in the Earth Day Groceries Project.

1. Locate a local grocery store that uses paper bags. Explain the project to the manager, and ask if you can "borrow" enough bags so each student in your school or classroom can decorate one.

2. Distribute the bags throughout your school, and explain the project to classrooms who would like to participate.

3. Give students enough time - and guidance - so they can create beautiful artwork and environmental messages on their bags.

4. Return the decorated bags to the store before Earth Day (April 22), and ask that the store distribute the bags to shoppers on Earth Day.

5. Send in a brief report - on the websiteFacebook, or even this blog, via a comment - to share how your project went. 

That's it. You can find much more detailed information and helpful suggestions on the website at Get Started.
