GOSHEN — Shoppers at Martin’s Super Market in Goshen were able to see the result of an Earth Day activity for Goshen elementary school students.

According to Judy Miller, Goshen Community Schools’ energy education specialist, 1,000 elementary students decorated donated paper grocery bags from Martin’s with Earth Day pictures and recycling ideas. The bags were then returned to Martin’s to be used to bag customers’ groceries.

To acknowledge their dedication to recycling, Miller said, decorated bags were also donated to the Habitat for Humanity Restore location in Goshen.

 In this Oct. 24, 2014 photo from the U.S. Geological Survey, the lava flow from Kilauea Volcano that began June 27 is seen as it crossed Apa?a Street near Cemetery Road near the town of Pahoa on the Big Island of Hawaii.  Hawaii authorities on Saturday told several dozen residents near the active lava flow to prepare for a possible evacuation in the next three to five days as molten rock oozed across the country road and edged closer to homes. The USGS says the flow is currently about 160 to 230 feet (50 to 70 meters) wide and moving northeast at about 10 yards (nine meters) per hour. It's currently about six-tenths of a mile (one kilometer) from Pahoa Village Road, the town's main street. (AP Photo/U.S. Geological Survey)
