Looking To Get Rid Of Plastic Grocery Bags? Check Out Mats For A Mission
There has been a lot of talk about plastic grocery bags lately in New York State as they've essentially been banned, but there is still a great use for those bags.
This morning, I found out about Mats For A Mission. They are a non-profit that takes those plastic grocery bags that you store under your sink or in your closet and makes them into mats for the homeless.
They really are incredible mats. I wish you could feel them.
They provide a barrier between the ground and the person who needs them to sleep on and yes, they're almost indestructable.
I was able to talk with Gail Potter about the mission and what you need to do to get these grocery bags to them:
If you would like to donate, they will accept bags from:

PLEASE - NO DEPARTMENT STORE BAGS OR ORANGE/BLUE NEWSPAPER BAGS
