Details

Volunteers from all walks of life get together to make re-useable fabric "Boomerang Bags" using recycled materials, to provide a sustainable alternative to plastic bags. The bags are given away to friends, family, colleagues, bagless strangers and so on, as a plastic bag alternative that can be used and reused, or passed on to others in need.

The bags create a platform to 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!

Thanks to wonderful donations from the local community, all materials are provided. BYO sewing machine if you would like to help out by sewing. No experience necessary, experienced sewists are available to help you if you are just starting out! Plenty of things for non-sewists to do as well.

Sprout Hub has coffee and snacks to purchase (cash or debit/credit card, no eftpos) and good accessibility. BYO re-usable coffee cup for 50 cents off!
