Students in first-grade classes at John Quincy Adams were inspired to help save the earth after being told by teachers Kim Alexander and Laura Gerstenhaber that the Suffolk County Legislature might consider passing a law to ban plastic bags. In advance of Earth Day, the first-graders created recycled shopping bags out of their own old T-shirts during an April 20 session.
