Mats made from milk bags

I was in touch with a fellow writer, Grace, this evening and the subject of the Mats4Haiti came up. I didn’t know if the project was still going. Looks like it is.

She wrote on her Facebook post:

Not everyone is fortunate to have a soft, comfortable bed on which to sleep.
As a child, I have experienced the feeling of sleeping on a hard, cold, bare floor. It was horrid!
One of our local churches is collecting outer 3 or 4-litre plastic milk bags, to be used to create bed mats, for people in less developed regions of the world.
I have started to save my milk bags in support of this worthy cause.

If someone looking for a way to help, here’s a drop-off place:

All Saints Anglican Church

      Charlotte, the bags are made of plastic. A way of using plastic that cannot be recycled otherwise.
