Crochet Plastic Mats for HaitiBy Rachel Choi – 11 Comments
I came across an article today (I wish I came across it sooner) that discussed making plastic mats for Haiti as a part of the post earthquake relief efforts. This idea is similar to the post I wrote featuring Rita Kunc, who crocheted milk bags to make mats for the homeless.
These crocheted plastic mats would also work great in Haiti. In fact, in Haiti’s warm climate, the mats become softer and are easy to clean. By sleeping on these mats as opposed to the ground, it can deter the chances of being bitten by parasites.
