Boomerang Bags work by getting fabric donations from the community and getting volunteers to sew the bags. What a great fun way to contribute to a sustainable world – create beautiful carry bags out of recycled materials!
In Australia, there are 860+ Boomerang Bag Communities, 205,603 + bags have been made, contributing to 62 000 + kilograms of waste diverted from landfill.
Boomerang Bags Chermside West Volunteer Group attend the Northey Street Organic Markets on the first Sunday of each month.
Bring some fabric donations and find out how to make your own bags or how to attend a sewing bee. Making bags together creates a platform to start conversations, make friends, up-cycle materials and work towards shifting society’s throw away mentality to a more sustainable revolution of re-use – one community, needle and thread at a time!
It’s through these grass roots community efforts for the environment that we can create a more sustainable society.
Boomerang Bags Chermside West Volunteer Group have created some great reusable Christmas gift ideas bags – give one to a loved one for Christmas or Boomerang Christmas Bags can also be used as reusable gift wrap!
