    Story

    About Boomerang Bags
    Boomerang Bags is a community driven initiative tackling plastic pollution at a grassroots level. The initiative works to mobilise communities to make re-useable ‘Boomerang Bags’ using recycled materials, which are made available to the wider community as a sustainable alternative to plastic bags.
    How it works
    Each Boomerang Bag is handmade by community groups, schools and volunteers from the local community, using donated second-hand materials.

    ✓ Builds community connectedness
    ✓ Creates a sense of purpose and community ownership
