Community Call Out

Boomerang BagsSingle-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

So help reduce plastic bags on the Cooloola Coast! To find out more or to get involved contact Barb Rees on 0423 841-062.
