Boomerang Bags

We’re pleased to now have a Boomerang Bags group based out of our Sustainability Centre at Carindale.


WHAT IS IT?

Boomerang Bags is a grassroots, community driven movement tackling plastic pollution at its source. Volunteers from all walks of life get together to make re-useable ‘boomerang bags’ using recycled materials, as a means to provide a sustainable alternative to plastic bags.

The bags are given away to friends, family, colleagues, bagless strangers and so on, as a plastic bag alternative that can be used and reused, or passed on to others in need. Find out more on the Boomerang Bags website.

JOIN IN!

We’re now having regular Boomerang Bags sessions here in Carindale.

Everyone is welcome. You don’t need to know how to sew – there’s a variety of tasks such as pinning, cutting, sorting and making cups of tea! There is absolutely no skill or knowledge you need to join.
