Go Green to Keep it Clean

03 February 2022 | Shannen Harte

One can imagine the long hours of boredom our dear grannies and grandpas have had to go through with all the covid precautions. This thought sparked an idea to start a dual project to keep our elderly community members active. As most of them crochet and knit in their spare time, we thought, why not kill two birds with one stone, with the wastage and excess of plastic bags, we have decided to start collecting them from around the community and use them to crochet into matts. Focusing on keeping the environment clean and keeping our elderly productive, there was much excitement, and to my surprise much excitement from our grandpas as well who were quiet keen to learn this new skill.
