What an incredible initiative thanks to the National Council of Jewish Women in Michigan USA. Eco-friendly project turns plastic bags into sleeping mats for the homeless. The effort involves taking plastic bags, cutting them into strips of plastic yarn — or “plarn” — and then knitting or crocheting the material into surprisingly comfortable bedding for homeless or displaced individuals.
Carrie Kushner is behind the initiative and knitting her third plastic mat for the homeless. ecoMVMNT congrats Carrie and her team for their creative and innovative initiative in reusing plastic bags for an important cause instead of plastic bags going to landfills.
