Boomerang Bags

​​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.

The bags create a platform to 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!

Together we link hands globally to create a paradigm shift to a more connected and conscious society.

If you would like to be involved in this project please contact me on 078958188 ext 216 or Emily.jasmine@ruapehudc.govt.nz
