The Earth Day Groceries Project: Students decorate paper grocery bags with messages about the environment

by: Mark Ahlness

This project is an Internet-based environmental project. Paper grocery bags are borrowed from local stores and students decorate the bags with environmental messages. The bags are then returned to the store and on Earth Day customers receive groceries in the decorated bags. Afterward, teachers report the class or school's participation on the project's website. A foldout is provided with more information.
