We are diverting textile waste from landfills by creating a use for waste material. We’re collecting waste fabric and turning it into reusable masks!
We hosted a province-wide upcycled reusable mask drive for the month of October and were pleasantly surprised with the success that we have extended the project. We will facilitate matching sewers with fabric donors until the demand of reusable masks dissipates.
We're looking for:
1) Old cotton t-shirts or any other 100% cotton fabric scraps, as well as elastic suitable for mask making
2) Volunteers to turn that material into masks
3) Organizations that hand out masks for free
To make this as contact-less as possible, when you register as a fabric donor we will try to match you up with a volunteer sewer nearby so you can drop the fabric off directly. When the masks are complete we will match the sewer with an organization close to them.
If you have fabric, can sew, or would like to receive masks to distribute, please register here and we'll pair you up with someone in your area!
We are specifically looking for sewers in:
- North Battleford
We are specifically looking for fabric in:
- Moose Jaw
