Sewing Up Sustainability

Tackle plastic pollution at the grass roots

If you are a keen stamper, stitcher, or you just want to help a community initiative, Boomerang Bags wants you.

Boomerang Bags will host two sewing bees in April to help bolster their collection.  Sewing bees on April 17th and April 28th will have volunteers of all skill levels creating the bags for public use.

Boomerang Bags is a community-driven initiative tackling plastic pollution at grass roots level.  Dedicated volunteers get together to make re-usable bags using recycled materials as a means to provide a sustainable alternative to plastic bags.

Volunteers can bring along sewing machines if they have them or just bring themselves.  No sewing experience is required; non-confident sewers can help cut, stamp, pin or iron.
