Plastic Bag Sleeping Mat Construction

Event Date: 
Tue, 08/06/2019 - 6:00pm - 8:00pm
University Terrace Lobby
No Cost

 The Creative Sustainability Council is working on a service project to take

    those pesky plastic grocery bags that everyone has a plethora of and give

    them a second life. We cut the bags and link the pieces to make string, then

    either crochet or knit with the string to make a sleeping mat about the size

    of a yoga mat. These mats will be donated to homeless shelters and soup

    kitchens for people who do not have a place to sleep.


    Every Tuesday from July 9 to Aug. 13 in the University Terrace lobby, 6 – 8

    pm, you can stop by to learn how to make the string and how to crochet. If

    you already know how to crochet or knit, we strongly encourage you to come

    join in the production! This project is a great way to make new friends and

    get out of your usual space.  Light snacks will be provided.  For more

    information, contact Sarah Starcovic (

       Hope to see you there!
