Boomerang Bags is an initiative aimed at reducing the use of plastic bags by engaging communities in making re-useable ‘Boomerang Bags’ as a fun, sustainable alternative.
Each Boomerang Bag is handmade by volunteers using donated, second-hand materials.
Bags can be made solo at home, with a group of friends or family, in the classroom, as a school or workplace activity, or at a public venue with the wider community.
Regular sewing sessions offer a venue for community members to engage in a positive action, raise awareness about sustainability issues, as well as encouraging connectedness and socialisation.
Plus they provide a hands-on learning environment to gain valuable practical skills.
Once made, Boomerang Bags can be boomerang’d to friends, family, colleagues or the bagless stranger in front of you at the supermarket … the possibilities are endless!
The first working bee for making Boomerang Bags for the Nambucca Valley is this Wednesday, May 10 from 10am and 3pm at the Pioneer Community Centre, High St, Bowraville.
Basic morning tea provided, please bring own lunch. Looking forward to seeing you there.
