Step 1) Connect
Boomerang Bags ‘communities’ are areas in which groups of volunteers get together to make bags.
You can either make bags solo, join a nearby Boomerang Bags community, or get some friends together and start a group of your own!
Step 2) Collect materials
Rummage through the linen closets of family, friends and friends of friends, or clean out your local op-shop for second-hand materials suitable for making bags!
Step 3) Make bags!
Get together with above mentioned group and make Boomerang Bags! You can use our templates, or come up with your own designs.
Step 4) Put them to use!
The bags can be given away to friends, family, colleagues, the bag-less stranger in front of you at the supermarket, they can be used to wrap presents in, or stashed in your car and handbag so that you’re never caught without a reusable bag when you need one.
However you choose to distribute your bags, the most important thing is to ensure that they’re distributed with a message…about waste, about sustainability about community… empowering people to be part of the solutions!
