"Plarning" at the Granby Library
Future Dates: December 3rd
The Library community is joining forces with the Plarning Platoon from the First Church in Ludlow to make "plarn" (plastic yarn) and crochet sleeping mats for local homeless people.
The project will help to reduce our carbon footprint by recycling plastic bags that are just thrown away while making a useful product. Clean plastic bags will be collected at the Library. The bags are cut into strips that are looped together to make large balls of plarn. The plarn will then be crocheted into water resistant, comfortable and portable sleeping mats for homeless people. Each mat takes between 500 and 700 plastic bags and many hours of dedicated work to complete. Anyone from the community who is willing to assist is welcome!
