We have decided to continue the plastic bag collection to acquire another bench for the playground starting January 3rd. As you all know the ones that we have collected so far are in the Nursery, ready to go out on Jan.3rd.
We do have another project we can do with the plastic bags besides collecting for the bench and it is called making PLARN, (plastic yarn) that is a project to make mats for the homeless out of the bags. We can make it a fun project for a good cause where we could meet once a week to put the bags together cut them in strips and intertwine them to make a mat; we need at least 500 plastic bags to do this project so it could take some time. There is a website at https://www.1millionwomen.com.au/blog/diy-crochet-plastic-bags-sleeping-mats-homeless/ plastic yarn if you want to check out the process. If you are interested in participating please let the office know. We will meet in either January or February.
