Sustainability in the Bag

Clearing out your old fabric or linen while you’ve been at home? Time to get sewing.

Why not repurpose it into a Boomerang Bag and not only help tackle the plastic bag problem, but also help combat the problem of fabric waste.

Boomerang Bags are sewn out of all sorts of things – left over fabric, doona covers, curtains, old clothes.

Read about how Boomerang Bags are connecting communities and tackling waste all over the world.

In Albany over 20,000 bags have been made already and are out in the world.

The Boomerang Bag pattern is easy to follow – and a great starter project for anyone new to sewing.
