For Textile Tuesday during Waste Reduction Week in Canada, the Saskatchewan Waste Reduction Council is hosting a province-wide upcycled reusable mask drive for the month of October.
We want to help divert textile waste from landfills by creating a use for waste material.
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 or can sew, please register below and we'll pair you up with someone in your area!
City or Town
Postal Code or Area of City (to help us match you with someone nearby)
