THE PLASTIC FREE MOVEMENT
Boomerang Bags is a community driven initiative tackling plastic pollution at the grassroots level.
Dedicated schools, community groups, 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!
Boomerang Bags attracts a dynamic group of people, young and old, who are passionate about reducing plastic bag pollution…we, as volunteers, gain a great deal of satisfaction to be offered the opportunity to be proactive.
These bags allow for the community to take the lead on reducing waste and pollution. Its a great idea and i hope to see it spread across the country.
Boomerang Bags create multiple levels of community mobilisation due to the creative approach to drive community action on sustainability.
