Protecting the environment from plastic film pollution while uplifting the homeless literally and figuratively.
Bags Into Beds is a 501(c)(3) that uses plastic bags and other films as a plush stuffing in beds for the homeless inhabiting southern California. The immediate goal of the project is to prevent plastic films from entering landfills, waterways and other natural areas while repurposing the plastic for something of greater use. The immediate goal is to employ individuals to aid in the manufacturing of and distribution of said beds to communities in need around the state. However, we are currently focused on refining the concept to better serve the almost 60,000 homeless individuals in L.A.
