Boomerang Bags at The Nest

Boomerang Bags kicked off in 2013 when Co-founders, Tania Potts and Jordyn de Boer met up with the dream of reducing plastic bags within their community of Burleigh Heads. Thanks to hundreds of amazing supporters and thousands of dedicated volunteers, Boomerang Bags has now become a global movement of grassroots, community action!

Boomerang Bags works to reduce the use of plastic bags by engaging local communities in the making of Boomerang Bags – community made, using recycled materials. Boomerang Bags provide a safe, fun, sustainable alternative to plastic bags.

The Nest Community Inc are establishing our own social Sunday group who love to sew bags and chat. We encourage members of the community from all ages to attend. It allows a wonderful opportunity to feel connected to the community, learn and develop new skills, all whilst being sustainable. All sales of The Nest Community Inc Boomerang bags, go back to the organisation to maintain its services.

Anyone looking to have a creative outlet as well as learning new skills are welcome to join. There is no membership fee.

We will be hosting session on the following dates, July 15th, August 19th, September 16th, October 21st and November 18th.
