Boomerang Bag Sew-a-thon!

Boomerang Bags is an Australian-based organization dedicated to reducing our dependence on single-use plastic bags. We can limit this major source of litter by using reusable bags!

But what happens if you forget to bring one to the store?In May of 2017, we started a local chapter of Boomerang Bags www.boomerangbags.org and humans age 7 to 73 worked side by side, because they believe in this project and the impact that it will make on our city, our community and the world. 

Groups of volunteers have been donating cotton fabric, cutting, ironing, sewing and organizing to produce free reusable cloth bags for our neighbors. In return, groups of seniors, teens, adults, scouts, school, colleges, and environmental groups are able to contribute to the community and the environment in a positive and tangible manor. We have donated nearly 2000 bags to food banks, family shelters and senior homes for distribution, but there is more work to do!
