Arbor Heights’ Earth Day Groceries Project bags have arrived!

(Photo by WSB co-publisher Patrick Sand)
Arbor Heights Elementary School teacher Mark Ahlness started the Earth Day Groceries Project in 1994, and it’s still going strong – with Ahlness and his students bringing this year’s delivery of specially decorated bags to Roxbury Safeway manager Sai Cho (upper left of our photo) this afternoon. The 350-plus bags – bearing art and messages about Earth Day – will be distributed to Safeway shoppers. (Though April 22nd is still more than a week away, but this is the last day of school before a week of spring break, and that’s why this was delivery day.)

    Mark Ahlness is an awesome teacher. I did the grocery bags project when I taught computers at Schmitz Park Elementary and the kids loved it! Those bags were given out at the Admiral Safeway. Keep up the great work, Mark!
