Mexico Noon Lions Club Cancels Bags To Benches Program

Just a little over a month after beginning the Bags To Benches Program, the Mexico Noon Lions Club is canceling it.

A Facebook post from the club today (Friday) states that the reason for canceling is “due to a lack of cooperation from the Trex Company…”

The program takes soft plastics collected by civic organizations and turns them into benches by the Trex Company, one bench per 500 pounds of plastics collected.

The Noon Lions were collecting the plastic to donate benches to Mexico Public Schools and say that they will weigh what has been collected and announce how many benches were earned and what schools they will go to.
