 MilkBags Unlimited is non-profit organization dedicated to reusing milk bags by making them into new essential products for humanitarian purposes. Their Facebook group describes the following of their work: 

This group brings together people who weave milk bag strips into sleeping, door, or chair mats, others who crochet them to make clutches, handbags, shopping/ beach bags, slippers and more.


The only material used is the outer bag of milk bags. Milk comes in bags in some Canadian Provinces ( Ontario, Quebec , the Maritimes ) as well as in India, China, Israel, Russia, Ukraine, Iran, Columbia, Uruguay, Argentina, Hungary, South Africa, and even in some parts of the U.S.

Milkbagsunlimited donates mats to natural disaster stricken countries, the homeless in Canada and sends them regularly to Burkina Faso, Brazil, Dominica, El Salvador , Ghana, Grenada , Guatemala , Haiti, Honduras , Jamaica, Kenya, Liberia , Malawi , Nicaragua , Peru, Philippines, Senegal, Sierra Leone, Tanzania, Zambia…
