Sew Much Less Waste


Photograph of handmade bags on floor


With more news than ever about the effects of plastic waste on our oceans, birds and animals, local communities have decided to take action. A year ago, a campaign to go plastic bag free was launched in Beecroft. To support local businesses who wanted to stop handing out plastic bags, residents started sewing reusable bags out of donated fabric. The idea spread. There are now groups in the Hornsby Shire sewing sturdy reusable bags that are given away to people who otherwise might need a plastic bag to carry shopping. It is all about a partnership between local businesses and residents to help reduce plastic waste.

This exhibition displays some of the bags made by local people that will be given away for shoppers to use, and use, and use again.

Sew Much Less Waste is on display from Monday 30 April to Tuesday 29 May.
