2. SAY GOODBYE
TO THE 
PLASTIC BAG

Forgot your bag?

We want to make sure that you always have another option.

That’s why a wonderful community of volunteers are creating and distributing Boomerang Bags across Ryde.

Parents, kids, schools, community groups, hobby groups… we need you all. Come together to make re-usable bags using recycled material as a means to providing sustainable alternative to plastic bags.

Volunteers

Let us know if you would like to join an existing group, start a new group or sew from home.

Materials

The beauty of these bags is that they are up upcycles material that would otherwise end up in landfill.

Cut, sew, stamp

Fun for all ages.

Can you cut, iron, pin, stamp, sew or make a great cuppa?

Distribute

We make them available in our local community so there’s no excuse for single-use.

We need your love

The only way Boomerang Bags can happen is with a beautiful community of volunteers. Can you donate some time or materials?

Workshops on first Sunday of every month

10am – 12.30pm

Hobby Sew Top Ryde Shopping Centre

We hate spam too. We promise we’ll never on-sell your details and only send updates if there’s something super important.

Why are we doing this?

Every plastic bag you don’t use is one less against these ugly stats.
