The Earth Day Groceries Project

Make Every Day...Earth Day

getting involved in our community

The Earth Day Groceries Project is an environmental awareness project. It's managed online by Mr. Mark Ahlness at Arbor Heights Elementary School in Seattle, Washington. This is the eighteenth year this project has been coordinated on the internet. Hundreds of schools have participated from High Schools to Kindergarten classes. We, too, have participated and borrowed paper grocery bags from local grocery stores. Then, we decorated them in the classroom with pictures of the Earth and wrote our environmental messages. Finally, we returned the decorated grocery bags to the stores. The stores then distributed these bags to shoppers on Earth Day. It was really a good way to get involved in our community and spread these messages out. We think we did something with pictures and words...
