About the event

Angela from Milkbags Unlimited will be facilitating a milkbag weaving session to educate us how we can recycle plastic milkbags into mattresses and mats. A volunteer initiative launched in Toronto following the 2010 Haitian earthquake has helped countless of people in need -- including those in disaster zones.

Each mattress is made of approximately 420 milk bags, with a lifespan of approximately 25 years. They are also waterproof, bug-proof and can be easily cleaned and dried.

Feel free to save your own milkbags and bring them to the event! 

Event Fee: To Be Determined (pay at the door or etransfer to info@rotaractmississauga.ca)
