The Problem

Through our study of Environmental issues related to the 3 R\\\'s: Reduce, Reuse and Recycle, our student decided they wanted to research ways to save our landfills from plastic bags. During this research our students learned about using plastic bags to make bed mats for the homeless. After meeting with local agencies focused on recycling and caring for the homeless. Our students decided to take on the task. We experimented with different methods to determine the most sustainable mat. We have received many donations of plastic bags from friends and families. Our plan is to create a hygiene kits to go with out gifts of mats to the homeless.

Our Plan

We want to partner with The Eco Center in Rome, Georgia. This organization provides education to our community as well as a safe home for over 25 live animal reptiles, amphibians, fish, and lizards that are native to Northwest Georgia. They also care for an rehabilitate injured animals.
