Recycle, Re-use – an amazing example

What a wonderful example of putting what some might think of as discarded rubbish to good use. The guides had asked our local Shipley supermarket if they could collect the old, returned, empty crisp packets for a project. They were met by cages of plastic and each of the 15 guides trudged back up Hall Royd with a sack-full on their back.

Back at church they set up a cottage industry. Opening out the empty crisp packets, washing them, hanging them on a line to dry before finally ‘shrink-wrapping’ them to form blankets. This involved getting sheets of plastic and greaseproof paper and ironing over the crisp packets.

End result: SPACE BLANKETS which will be sent off for homeless people and refugees to use. A-ma-zing! Well done girls and leaders once again.
