As a way to Be Kind to our community, we identified a way to recycle plastic bags by re-purposing bags into plarn (plastic yarn) to be used to make sleeping mats for the homeless.
This process can be replicated at home or in the workplace. Which role will you enjoy most?
It takes approximately 700 bags to make one mat. We have collected over 8,000 plastic bags since launching our Plastic Bag Recycling Program in July of this year. We were thrilled to see how many employees, residents, family members, and volunteers from the community came together to recycle their bags and donate their time to help make these sleeping mats for the homeless.
Sue Roemer from The Sleeping Mat Project has been instrumental in helping us set up Mat Making Days at multiple locations. Once complete, our mats will be donated to Angels in Motion who will distribute them to those who are homeless in the Philadelphia area.
