Sleepers for Newborns

Bags to Benches

Description: 

Members have been collecting, weighing, and recycling plastic bags of all types.  Every 500 pounds of plastic recycled earns the club a bench that can be donated to the community.  The first two benches earned by the club were donated to the Federal Way Senior Center and City Hall.  A third bench was earned in May 2021 and its home has yet to be determined.  No additional plastic is being collected at this time.
