Project: Turn Plastic Bags Into Sleeping Mats
Transform all of your unwanted plastic shopping bags into something useful! By single crocheting strips of plastic bags together, you can make a plastic sleeping mat, which can be distributed to homeless shelters. The plastic bag mats will repel parasites and are moisture resistant, durable, lightweight, easy to store, and make a great temperature barrier.
New Recruiting Materials Available

The West Virginia Community Educational Outreach Service (WVCEOS) has a strong tradition of education, service, and community development, dating back to 1914 when the first club (Farm Women’s Club in Ohio County) was established. The West Virginia University Extension Service provides support to the organization through county and state faculty. Extension faculty members serve as advisors to local groups and the state board and develop WVCEOS program topics on timely issues. Program areas of emphasis include: preserving the environment, building family strengths, and increasing awareness of our global interdependence. Additional resources, by subject matter, can be found at Publications. A Memorandum of Understanding is in effect between WVCEOS and the WVU Extension Service. Prior to the start of each calendar year, the County Council and their Extension Faculty Advisor should complete the Responsibilities Agreement.
