A Better SA for Mandela Day
With the help and guidance of Better SA we created biodegradable sleeping bags for the homeless. A frosty cold front was due to hit the heart of Jo’burg the weekend before Mandela Day. Thus, we created the sleeping bags on the 14th of July 2017. The sleeping bags were made from plastic and sufficient layers of newspaper sheets. Making the sleeping bags well insulated, water proof, environmentally friendly and easy to carry around.
