Boomerang Bags is a community driven initiative tackling plastic pollution at the grassroots level.

Boomerang Bags Nambour operates with the support of SCILS: Thank you so much ladies


Dedicated community groups, schools, businesses and volunteers get together to make re-useable “Bommerang Bags” using recycled materials as a mean to replace plastic bags.

Through Boomerang Bags; we 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!

The project relies on the time and generosity of the local community.

The group meets every 2nd Tuesday in SCILS’ craft room. the resume after the Christmas break on Tuesday 23rd January 2018

2. Volunteer to make bags: sewing skills not essential

3. Spread the word or get involved;
