InterGeneration ~ The Plastic Bag Project
An intergenerational and waste awareness project that brings seniors from Agnes Pratt Home and students from Waterford Valley Social Justice Club together to share strengths, and transfer skills towards a common purpose of up-cycling plastic bags into durable goods like tote bags. InterGeneration is supported by the Co-operators Group IMPACT! Youth Sustainability Leadership Fund and with support from Recycle NL and the City of St. John’s Waste Reduction Division.
InterGeneration will start in early spring. The project integrates an orientation session and three workshops with students and seniors working together at Agnes Pratt. The orientation session will cover an overview on how to make yarn and up-cycled goods and a waste awareness presentation about plastics. follow us #InterGeneration
