April 15, 2013 - As part of the Dearness Conservation Program, students from St. Charles Catholic Elementary School in Chelmsford collected milk bags once again this school year to donate to the “Bags for Beds” project. A total of 1600 bags were brought in over a four week period.
The opportunity to participate in this project supports students to deepen their understanding of how a seemingly simple recycling activity results in a profound improvement in the quality of life for others.
Azilda resident, Ms. Rolande Nault , picked up the bags and explained that she and four of her friends meet twice weekly to cut the bags into strips which they then crochet into mats. The mats are donated to developing nations, such a Haiti, where they are used as beds.
