Recycling Milk Bags into Bed Mats mat picture

Several weeks ago Father Rick highlighted the Christian community initiative in Ottawa of transforming milk bags into bed mats:
“With scissors, crochet hook and willing hands, we can transform our garbage into these washable, quick-dry bed mats which provide an alternative to sleeping on the damp, hard ground. The mats have gone to Haiti, Nigeria, Mexico and the Canadian Food for Children ministry. The milk bags are also crocheted into strong, waterproof Tote bags. We use the colourful outer milk bag which holds the three smaller clear bags inside.  ”

During our Lenten mission, please collect your plastic milk bags. If we get enough we will have a work bee to transform them into mats. The bags are to be collected at the front entrance of each church until Easter.
