Approximately 40,000 plastic grocery bags will be used to meet our goal of 100 mats by the start of winter in 2018.
Plastic grocery bags are cut into 2” strips and then tied together to make plastic yarn balls (plarn).
Plarn is then crocheted into a 32” x 6’ sleeping mat, which is the standard size for a large sleeping pad.
Once our goal is reached, sleeping mats will be distributed to individuals in the community who need them.
