An Ongoing Project: Making Mats

Keeping plastic out of our oceans and helping our local community!

Our newest project reduces plastic waste and helps our local community. We are using plastic bags to make mats for those experiencing homeless in our area. Community members donate their plastic grocery bags and our volunteers braid them into sleeping mats. These mats protect from harsh surfaces, they are easy to clean, and they last for long periods of time.

Feel free to share with friends and family! If you'd like to help us out or try this idea on your own, here is a video on how to braid the mats and here is a video on how to tie off the ends. Fill out this google form if you are interested in volunteering.
