A group of women in Wendover, Ontario are using used milk bags to make bed mats for people living in Haiti. Bridgehead is now helping Summerlea Dairy to collect these bags for them to use!
The women cut the bags into strips and tie them together to form long strips. They then crochet them together into hammocks. One single adult bed takes anywhere between 300-500 milk bags. It is a project that helps communities in need as well as re-directing these bags from waste facilities.
The donations start this week and we look forward to seeing how the project progresses. Thanks to everyone for helping out!
