New Life for Old Bags Plastic Mats

In the last 3 years, 500,000 plastic grocery bags have been crocheted into mats for homeless people. These bags would have ended up in Chicago’s landfills and waterways. Instead, they are used to make a light-weight, quick-drying bed roll for our friend in need.

Each mat requires about 80 hours of crocheting time and most mats are made by senior citizen volunteers. Over 700 mats have been given to CCO for distribution and we are grateful for all the time and hard word volunteers have put in to make such a special item.

We are grateful to New Life for Old Bags for all their work on behalf of Chicago’s homeless! You make a difference! Click below to view their latest video clip…
