SUMMARY of RESULTS
"I just did not realize how critical things are becoming with our environment. I am busy running around and doing stuff that I forget to stop and talk to my kids about how to use less resources and be mindful of our environment. When my 4th grader brought her BagSpeak bag home with the image of our sick planet, it really hit home...Thanks teachers and BagSpeak (Power2Sustain) for taking the time and effort to teach what is such an important topic today!
Ann K., Parent Mountain View, CA
"The BagSpeak (Power2Sustain) project is just awesome. My student just naturally understood that there are problems with our environment right now and really wanted to work on solutions to make things better....The money that our class received from the sale of the student-created bags will go to do more environmental literacy activities..Thanks...You guys rock!"
Lisa R., Teacher, Santa Cruz, CA
"Who doesn't love a custom one-of-a-kind anything. To have each student illustrate their own messages on reusable shopping bags is such a great idea! To have them learn about the issues with our planet and to start to think about how to solve them is an even better thing! Thanks for this project BagSpeak (Power2Sustain)!"
Jose Morales, Assistant Principal, Salinas Valley, CA
"Our company believes in strong environmental practices. We are so pleased to have found the BagSpeak (Power2Sustain) project and to have supported sustainability learning for the next generation.... our visions aligned and the partnership was a natural."
