Corowa Boomerang Bag launches
Corowa Boomerang Bags were successfully launched at the Corowa Community Garden Open Day on Sunday, October 28.
Boomerang Bags are a way of engaging the local community in actively reducing plastic bags and waste.
The Boomerang Bags are hand sewn from recycled fabric by volunteers.
The event was attended by many supporters of the initiative.
Gail Law, councillor representing Federation Council, spoke passionately about how the council is supporting projects such as Boomerang Bags because they foster community engagement.
Corowa Lions, a valued supporter of the project, were represented by secretary Graham Withers who endorsed the project. Craig Waldren from Corowa IGA attended. Mr Waldren is phasing out plastic bags and has become a project partner.
The bags will be available for a gold coin donation at the store.
If you are interested in joining the Corowa and District Boomerang Bag Project please contact Sally Hughes on 0427 549 856.
Sewing bees are held on Wednesdays at 12.30pm at the Corowa Lion’s Den.
Materials and cottons can be supplied for people who would like to sew at home.
The group also welcomes community groups from across the Federation Council who want to find out more about the project or would like to be involved.
