Earth Day Campaign in School, United Arab Emirates
A school in UAE celebrated earth day on April 22nd, the 40th anniversary of Earth Day. They took part in the grocery bag project initiated by Mark Ahlness. The students enjoyed decorating thier grocery bags and were enthusiastic about writing positive messages about caring about our planet Earth.
The students had the chance to promote their bags at the Carrefour hypermarket and also they talked with the shoppers and helped the salespeople by using their recycled bags instead of plastic bags! They also got parents involved in helping the students to create a recycled project and they made a big display in the school’s reception so that all of our visitors can see it.
The School devoted one full week of environmental awareness activities including designing and promoting grocery bags, morning assembly, planting trees, also the students had the chance to visit some governmental organizations including: The Higher Colleges of Technology (RAK women’s college), Ministry of Education and the Cultural Center to distribute flowers and wish people a "Happy Earth Day"!
