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 participation 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!
