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 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.
