Boomerang Bags Bega Valley Sapphire Coast

Boomerang Bags is a community driven initiative reducing plastic waste / pollution / Fossil Fuels / landfill

Boomerang Bags:

Dedicated community groups, schools, businesses and volunteers get together to make re-usable ‘Boomerang Bags’ using recycled or donated materials, which will be offered to shoppers to ‘Borrow and Bring Back’ instead of single-use plastic bags, which are on average used for only 12 minutes and then thrown away.                                            Creating opportunities for Indigenous, Disadvantaged, Unemployed or Migrants to become involved in a meaningful activity, make friends, learn skills and up-cycle materials to be re-used and shared. 

The project relies on the time and generosity of the local community.

You can help out by: Volunteer to help make BAGS!  No sewing experience required - we teach. Sewing with us on Fridays 10am-2pm at the Bega Repair Café / Youth Space 91 Gipps St.

Donating 2nd-hand material e.g. men's ties, which can be made into bag handles. Plenty of other material already donated. Fabric available for other projects - just ask.

Spread the word - talk to your friends.
