Bags To Benches

Thanks Chatham UMC, Chatham Methodist Preschool-CMP and Chatham Community for your help in collecting 500 pounds of plastic bags!

We have met our goal! This takes roughly 500,000 plastic bags out of the ecosystem. The ultimate goal is to eliminate the need for plastic bags by using re-usable bags. The next Bags to Benches drop of location is St. Patrick Parish: 41 OLIVER ST. CHATHAM, NJ 07928   

Thank you for helping us care for the Creation!
