Boomerang Bags

Boomerang Bags is an initiative where communities make and share reusable shopping bags to reduce plastic use. It started in Burleigh Heads on the Gold Coast and has been quickly adopted both around Australia and overseas. For more information check out their website.

Kyneton Community House and Kyneton Transition Hub are jointly supporting this initiative in Kyneton.

Kyneton Boomerang Bags group has produced well over 4000 bags since starting about two years ago. Production is slowing however, and we need more volunteers. There’s no need for you to be able to sew as there are plenty of jobs for all ages and talents. Our volunteers are involved in sewing, cutting out, creating, delivering, organising, storing, donating and giving support. You can even just drop in and have a chat and share a cuppa as we enjoy extra company.

Stockists are:

  • Aesops Attic
  • Alter Your Health
  • Kyneton Library
  • Squishy Minnie
  • Watts Fresh
Our working bees are on  the first Monday of the month between 1 and 3 pm at the Kyneton Community House in Mollison Street. We would love to see you there. Anyone can help – no expertise required. You can even receive free instruction on using a sewing machine if you wish.

For more information find us on facebook, email us at kynetonboomerangbags@gmail.com or phone the KCH on 5422 3433.
