We are taking a short break from sewing bags in August and will not have a Sewing Bee!!!
By getting involved with Boomerang Bags, you are participating in a national movement that celebrates a local grassroots initiative, community building and sustainability.
Boomerang Bag makers take second-hand fabric and up-cycles it into reusable bags to help eliminate the plastic bag! We run sewing bees where anyone can come along, learn how to make a bag and lend a helping hand. If you are unable to attend a sewing bee, we will be able to provide you with some cut out bags to sew at home.
The bags are then sold at local stockists at a minimal price. All proceeds go back into creating more bags. It's a self-sustaining cycle of goodness for the environment!!!
To date, the Boomerang Bag initiative has made 199,603 bags globally - that's equal to 43.9 million plastic bags replaced or 59,880 kilograms of waste diverted from landfills!
