Dedicated community members, schools, and businesses get together to make bags using recycled materials. Through Boomerang Bags, the members start conversations, make friends, up-cycle, divert waste and work towards shifting society’s throw away mentality to a more sustainable revolution of reuse – one community, needle and thread at a time. Boomerang Bags Tea Gardens Hawks Nest are in the early stages of setting up in our local town. To date, a group of volunteers have commenced sewing bags using donated materials. They have also screen printed their own personalised pockets for the bags. The volunteers are seeking community support for donations of material to be used as bags. Material can be dropped off at the Hawks Nest Take Away or the Tea Gardens Real Estate. They also need volunteers to assist with cutting, ironing, sewing or anything else they feel they may be able to assist with such as being an extra set of hands at sewing bees.
