Seawinds ‘boomers’ (aka volunteers) have been hard at work making Boomerang Bags on an ongoing basis for the Southern Peninsula Community Support, who use them in place of plastic bags to provide fresh and pantry food items for people in need.
In April, the dedicated group used their boomerang bags to fundraise enough to purchase these wonderful backpack swags as a gift for homeless people on the Mornington Peninsula (Victoria, AUS). The swags ensure a warm bed, security and a place to call home, particularly during the winter months.
“Look what happens when two women (the co-founders) get together to talk about preventing single-use plastic.. we have now made over 6000 boomerang bags, displacing more than 600,000 plastic bags from landfill. Proud to be a boomer. Today I taught a 7 year old how to make a bag!”
