Winton Boomerang Bags Working bee

WINTON BOOMERANG BAGS WORKING BEE

Boomerang Bags is a grassroots, community driven movement tackling plastic pollution at its source. Volunteers from all walks of life get together to make re-useable ‘boomerang bags’ using recycled materials, as a means 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. More can be read about the Boomerang bag movement at https://boomerangbags.org/

We will be having our first working bee on SATURDAY 8TH SEPTEMBER at the Presbyterian Church hall in Winton from 10am to 3pm. We will have a variety of jobs that people are able to help with (sewing, cutting, sorting, ironing etc). You do not have to stay all day. If you only have a small time available on that day your help would still be appreciated.

If you have a sewing machine or overlocker that you are able to bring on the day that would be greatly appreciated. The more we have the easier the task. I will provide you will tea/coffee and some food to keep you going :) !

Donations of fabric is greatly appreciated. Contact via the Facebook page for your closest drop off point. https://www.facebook.com/Winton-NZ-Boomerang-Bags-408141033046075/?ref=bookmarks

If you are unable to make the day but wish to sew some bags at home, please contact  us as we will have some precut bags available.
