4 October 2016; 2.00pm – 4.00pm at Busselton Skate Park, 1 Scout Rd, Busselton
The project was aimed at young people to paint on recycled calico bags (bags donated from the National Youth Week, provided by CoB) and turn them into Boomerang Bags. Each participant was asked to paint two bags – one to keep and one to give away. We have collected the ‘give-away’ bags to donate to Pricey’s IGA in Busselton, as they are the only plastic-free grocery shop in Busselton.
A total of approximately 40 bags were painted and decorated by children and youth, with 27 bags collected for donation. It was a very windy and cloudy day and the skate park was not overly busy.
What are Boomerang Bags?
Boomerang Bags ‘communities’ are groups of volunteers who get together to make reusable bags regularly for the wider community to use. People can either make bags solo, join a nearby Boomerang Bags community, start a community of their own, or simply get together with friends to make a few bags over a cuppa.
