The Boomerang Bags program was started in Australia in 2013. Minneapolis Climate Action brought the program to the U.S. in 2017 and is now the U.S. headquarters!
The Boomerang Bags movement is a network of local volunteers who work independently to reduce waste in their communities. Donated fabrics diverted from landfills are sewn by volunteers into beautiful and unique reusable bags. These bags are distributed to the public who are encouraged to "borrow & bring back." These bags cut down on the need for single-use plastic and paper, uneconomical and wasteful options for our communities.
Join us for our next SEWING BEE
Our "Sewing Bees" are held on the third Saturday of every month. Please contact us below if you are interested in attending.
We'll provide the snacks. While we have some sewing machines available, please bring your own machine if you want to sew. If not, don't worry. Feel free to bring an iron, scissors, fabric, or just yourself!
All are welcome. We sincerely appreciate fabric donations, including reusable bags.
Join our Facebook group to connect and get event updates and news.
Please spread the word by sharing our Facebook event and bring anyone who might be interested.
Check out our beautiful short documentary film about Boomerang BagsAnd thank you to Felicity Britton for her commitment to reducing plastic waste and all our volunteers who sew these little pieces of art every month.
