Boomerang Bags

Boomerang Bags is a grassroots, community driven movement that works to reduce the use of plastic bags by engaging local communities to make Boomerang Bags using salvaged materials. Volunteers get together for sewing bees, a cuppa and a chat and upcycle donated materials into beautiful reusable shopping bags that provide a sustainable alternative to plastic bags. 

The bags are then placed in local businesses for customers to borrow and bring back, or buy (for a small donation) and reuse. As you can imagine, demand is high, so Boomerang Bags Toowoomba has taken the initiative to create DIY Take Home Kits so you can make your own at home. Grab a bunch and make yourself a set of unique reusable shopping bags, or one for each family member. These upcycled fabric bags are fun, functional, light and easy to carry.

Thank You. 100% of proceeds from the sale of each Boomerang Bags DIY Take Home Kits are a donation back to Boomerang Bags Toowoomba.


NB: As the Boomerang Bags DIY Take Home Kits are made in small batches from donated materials by a local community group of volunteers , availability, colours and patterns will vary.
