Boomerang Bag Making

We need help to make a 1,000 bags to go out into the local community to reduce single use plastic bags being used! We also need help distributing these bags and making sure people know about the scheme and shops use them in the correct way. We need to get posters up in all shops participating and refill shops with bags when they run out.

Plastic bag use has not gone down despite being told it has with the new charges. Bag use has actually increased with the use of bags for life, which are made from thicker, harder plastic. Plastic bags form a huge part of plastic pollution and we need help to try over come this together. 

Our aims are to provide bags made from old materials, such as old curtains, bed spreads etc., to people who have forgotten their bags in local shops. The bags are to be borrowed and returned the next time they are passing. 


We need people who can help to sew the bags from old materials.

We need people who can deliver these made bags directly to the shops that need them.

We need people who can check if shops need more bags.

We need people who can shout about the scheme and get more people involved in the above list.
