When the students were discussing what we could do for our project, a boy in the class came up with the idea of making a Plarn. Plarn is the ‘yarn’ also called plastic yarn that is used to knit or crochet the plastic mat. We are using this to turn plastic bags into sleeping bags for the homeless. This project combines recycling with a community project of helping the homeless.
We have been working hard on this project, but it is done in the lunch hour of those who volunteered. It has taken much longer than expected. We were hoping to get our project completed this term, but it will have to roll over to next year.
