Schools project for Earth Day! Earth Day Groceries Project
Earth Day Groceries
To bad they are not full of food to the poor!
Dear Educators, You and your schools are invited
to participate in the eighth annual Earth Day Groceries Project! This activity
is coordinated entirely on the Internet. There is no cost, the rewards are many,
and registration is not necessary. This project is a sure-fire way to
increase environmental awareness at your school, empower your students as
teachers, and build strong community ties. It all happens on Earth Day, April
Visit the completely redesigned website for complete information:
http://www.earthdaybags.org Read through some of the thousands of inspirational reports. Look at
pictures of students working on and proudly displaying their Earth Day Grocery
Bags. Pick up the online Starter Kit. Find out why so many schools have made
this activity an annual schoolwide event. Below are the Four Simple Steps from
the project web site:
1. Borrow. Contact a local grocery store that uses large paper grocery bags.
See if the manager will let you "borrow" enough bags so that each student in
your school can decorate one. Let the manager know about the project and its
environmental education message, of course! Grocers usually get these bags in bundles of 500.
2. Decorate. Have students at school decorate the bags with pictures of the
earth, environmental messages, the name of your school, etc. Be creative! DO NOT
allow students to write their last names on any bags.
3. Deliver. A couple of days before Earth Day you and/or your students return
the decorated bags to the grocery store - with many thanks to the manager! The
store then distributes these bags (full of groceries) to happy and amazed
shoppers on Earth Day.
4. Report. Fill out the report form on the project web site to document your
schools commitment to caring for our world on Earth Day. Please, only one
report per school. All reports will be posted on the Earth Day Groceries web
site at http://www.earthdaybags.org
The Earth Day Groceries Project is one of the
oldest and largest educational activities on the Internet. Begun in 1994 with a
simple email invitation that attracted a handful of schools, it now involves
hundreds of thousands of schoolchildren, grocers, and consumers around the world
annually. Now operated as a nonprofit 501(c3) organization, the project is still
run by its founder, Mark Ahlness, a third grade teacher in Seattle
Remember, you do not need to sign up or register, just have a
great time with the project! Happy Earth Day, 2008
