Boomerang Bags

Reducing plastic bags in Hornsby Shire

What are 'Boomerang Bags'? 

Boomerang Bags is a world-wide community based movement that started in Australia to reduce the number of plastic bags in circulation.

Why are people sewing reusable bags? 

The group aims to assist businesses and shoppers to cut down on the use of plastic bags.  The bags are given away to be used and re-used.

Who does the sewing? 

Volunteers sew the Boomerang Bags with fabric that has been donated. The Hornsby Shire has groups in Beecroft, Pennant Hills, Berowra and Hornsby.

Can I contribute even though I can’t sew?  

There are many tasks that don't require using a sewing machine, such as cutting and ironing. You can learn new skills, while making friends and helping to save the environment.
