Milk Bag Project - Request for help

Lauren Eckert, one of our Scouts, has taken on a project making milk bag sleeping mats for 3rd World children. The washable mats repel bugs, and provide an alternative to sleeping on the damp and bare ground. They are made from the plastic of the outer milk bag, which holds the three smaller clear bags inside. It takes approximately 250 milk bags to create a sleeping mat.

Could you please save your “outer milk bags” and give them to Ringtail (Guy L'Anglias) at our regular meetings.  See http://www.bagsforbeds.com/ for more details.
