What is Boomerang Bags?

Boomerang Bags is a community driven initiative tackling plastic pollution at the grassroots level. 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!
