Coming soon announcement
We are currently designing new community pages for our Boomerang Bags communities, including a searchable map for you to join communities, and a new way of creating communities with us.
While this is developed, our website is operating with the basics: our information, articles, and shop are still online, but searching for and creating communities is briefly paused. Sign up to receive updates when community joining and creation is live again.
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.

Boomerang Bags exists to connect people and empower them to create change, through something as simple as creating recycled fabric bags together, to lessen use of plastic.
While we are redesigning our site, you can still get involved through donating. If you’d like to donate fabric, please email us until we have our searchable community directory.
Sign up to be alerted when our community pages go live soon. Once that happens, you can join existing or create new communities.
In our supporters’ words
“One Boomerang Bag can pass through six sets of local hands before it’s finished; someone will collect the fabric, then it is cut to size, ironed, pinned, handles are also cut, ironed and sewn and then we cut and screen print our own pockets and sew the whole thing together."

"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."
“I believe that lots of people doing small things can make a huge difference. The Boomerang Bag initiative is just one answer to the plastic problem we have all created.”
