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.

We would appreciate flannelette fabric for making reusable menstrual pads.  These pads will be donated to women in our community who are affected by period poverty.  If you would like to make your own pads click on this link:  http://lunawolf.co.uk/wordpress/

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