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.
We could not have Kiama Boomerang Bags without the help of Kiama Municipal Council, Illawarra Joint Organisation and the support of Josephine St John – Council’s Waste Management Officer.
