The 1st Saugeen Shores Pathfinders make many milk bag mats as part of their service work to earn their Canada Cord.


The girls divide into teams that each have a task.   Some help to sort, flatten and cut the bags into strips for making the chains while others then create the 'chains' used in weaving so that others can make the mats.

The girls enjoy making milk-bag mats knowing that they are having a positive impact by keeping plastic waste bags out of the landfill while also helping people during natural disasters around the world.
