We are happy to offer you the use of our Boomerang Bags. Handmade by volunteers out of recycled fabric, these bags give you the opportunity to reduce your use of plastic. If you find yourself without a bag, grab a Boomerang Bag. Next time you drop by, return the bag to the rack for someone else to use.
Boomerang Bags kicked off in 2013 when co-founders, Tania Potts and Jordyn de Boer had the dream of reducing plastic bags within their community of Burleigh Heads. Boomerang Bags has now become a global movement of grassroots, community action!
These particular bags were sewn by 15 community volunteers using fabrics donated by our local community. They feature patches decorated and printed by students of Unley Primary School and clients of ECH Day Program Henley Beach as part of the Forget Me Not pilot, an intergenerational dementia program.
If you are interested in getting involved in making Boomerang Bags please see library staff for more information.
