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.
We have regular Boomerang Bags sessions here in Carindale.
Everyone 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.
WHEN: Sunday 20th May 2018, 10am-12pm. FB event.
WHEN: Thursday 31st May 2018, 9am-11am. FB event.
WHERE: B4C Sustainability Centre, Cnr 1358 Old Cleveland Rd & Wright St, Carindale.
(entrance off Wright St).
We have parking for both bicycles and cars. RSVPing is not compulsory, but we’d love it if you could let Jewel know you’re coming (contact details at the end of this page). We’ll have some morning tea for you too.
Do you have fabric or cotton to donate? The group would love to receive it to upcycle into eco-friendly and unique shopping bags! Please get in touch (contact info at the end of this page). You can drop-off at our office and we also have an after hours drop-off address also in Carindale (contact Jewel below to get it).
Want to buy a bag? They are $4 each. They are for sale from the B4C office at at our Sustainability Centre open days. Funds go back to cover costs of the group and to make regular donations to the Bulimba Creek Environment Fund.
