Boomerang Bags – Come On, Let’s Introduce This Great Initiative In Weybridge!
Boomerang Bags made by community members from used fabric are a great way to avoid single-use plastic shopping bags. Can we introduce this to Weybridge?
Thanks to Tricia Welch Bland, organiser of the Thames Ditton Boomerang Bags initiative, for the above photos, which show her and others delivering bags to happy local shopkeepers.
Borrow and return Boomerang Bags, made by community members from used fabric, are a great way to avoid single-use plastic shopping bags.
They also encourage local shopping (with returning customers for local traders) and a great community feeling (with people coming together to do something worthwhile and good for the environment).
The Thames Ditton Boomerang Bags group has offered to mentor other Boomerang Bag groups.
Kits are free with easy instructions and materials to make 5 bags.
If this is something you are interested in being involved in, either as a community member helping to make some bags, donate materials, or as a shopkeeper, please get in touch.
Please contact us by email: firstname.lastname@example.org
This is such a great idea @WeybridgeSurrey !! Can Weybridge step it up and join in the good work? We’d love to be part of it. We need to get the ball rolling on this one!
We would love to be involved too.
