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 modern consumers.
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. Please spread the word and bring anyone who might be interested. We sincerely appreciate fabric donations including reusable bags.
