Earth Flag Impacts Students for the Rest of Their Lives

The Earth Flag symbolized that our school was operating in an environmentally friendly way. For eight years of grammar school both of my children were encouraged by our school to use reusable lunch bags, sandwich containers, and cloth napkins. This may not sound like much, but this continued in our family through high school and college. It has evolved into our way of living and my children are now young adults using refillable water bottles and Chico bags. We live with the awareness that what we do impacts our environment and we are grateful to SCARCE for enlightening us.
