Single-use plastic bags to be banned in Queensland from 2018, but Boomerang Bags is a community driven initiative tackling plastic pollution at the grassroots level right now.
Dedicated community groups, schools, businesses and volunteers get together to make re-useable ‘Boomerang Bags’ using recycled materials as a means to replace plastic bags.
Through Boomerang Bags we 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!
The project relies on the time and generosity of the local community.
You can help out by:
- Donating second-hand materials- linen, fabric offcuts, curtains, thread
- Volunteer to help make bags- sewing skills not essential!
- Spread the word! talk to your friends, follow us on facebook.com/boomerangbags
So help reduce plastic bags on the Cooloola Coast! To find out more or to get involved contact Barb Rees on 0423 841-062.
