Earth Day is just around the corner - April 22! This is your invitation to
join in on one of the oldest and largest educational activities coordinated
on the Internet: The Earth Day Groceries Project. Celebrating its TENTH
ANNIVERSARY on the Internet, this is a free environmental education activity
where students are empowered as educators in their communities. Chances are
pretty good that you or someone you know has brought home a beautiful work
of art on a grocery bag on Earth Day. Here's your opportunity to get your
school involved in the project that started it all.

The web site: http://www.earthdaybags.org

The procedure:
1) a school borrows paper bags from a local grocery store
2) students decorate those bags with beautiful environmental art and
environmental awareness messages, and then return the bags to the store
3) the store distributes those bags (full of groceries) to amazed shoppers
on Earth Day
4) the school sends in a report to the project web site, documenting its

No registration is required. It costs nothing to participate. All that's
needed is someone to organize the effort at your school (other groups can
participate, too!). Stop by the web site to find out more.  Even frequent
participants will find new goodies there: a PowerPoint presentation, free
desktop wallpaper, even screensavers!

The Earth Day Groceries Project web site has complete information on
participation, thousands of inspirational reports, and hundreds of beautiful
pictures.  In 2002, over a million pieces of art, carefully created on
grocery bags, were given away by children who cared about their Earth. In
the spirit of Earth Day, that message will be sent out again this year. I
hope you and your school can join in. Happy Earth Day!
