Boomerang Bags reducing the use of single-use plastic bags

We are incredibly excited to be rolling out the ‘Boomerang Bag’ scheme in our home town of Emsworth, and are hoping that it will spread all along the Solent region! Boomerang Bags are made up by local people with off cuts of material and left in shops for shoppers to borrow and bring back when they remember, or you can give them to family, friends, strangers, anywhere that you see single-use plastic bags being used or you think could benefit from a reusable bag. We know they won’t all come back but hoping a few will, and we can reduce the plastic even further on the Solent. Together we can work together to encourage a less wasteful society with small schemes like this, encouraging people to think twice about throw-away plastic bags and single-use plastic in general.

We need more makers! If you have some spare time and are handy with a sewing machine, or know someone who is, please contact us! We have the patterns ready to go, you can download them here: Boomerang Bags – Making a Bag instructions

We also need donations of material. It really doesn’t matter what it looks like or how old it is, it just needs to be clean.  If anyone has any time on their hands and likes cutting fabric and sewing then please get in touch as we need a team to get more bags ready!

Thanks everyone!
