With a fresh focus on the alarming number of
plastic bags going into landfill, it is inspiring to
see communities tackling the problem of single
use plastic bags head on.

Boomerang Bags is a community-driven initiative where fabric bags are
available for you to borrow when you do your shopping, so that you don’t
have to use plastic bags. After borrowing the bag it is then returned to
the collection point to be used by your neighbour. To date there are 35
Boomerang Bags communities across Australia, and over 28,000 bags have
been produced.

Boomerang Bags relies entirely on the generosity of local residents,
who donate their time to sew the bags using donated materials. Visit
Boomerang Bags at the Melbourne Craft & Quilt Fair to see how you can
make a change in your own community
