Production under way

May 24, 2018

The first kit received to begin Boomerang Bags in Tatura.

Boomerang Bags continue to gain traction in Tatura, as the town’s newest sustainability act kicks off.

Community members have begun the process, attending ‘Boomerang Thursdays’ at Tatura Community House.

Many have generously donated fabric, old sheets and doona covers to be transformed into reusable bags for the town’s shopping needs.

After purchasing items at many local stores, shoppers will be able to pick up a bag and return it to any shop in town with a Boomerang Bag box on site.

The group is grateful to receive boxes for the bags, kindly donated by Viberts Mitre10, Tatura.

With production under way, the next step is having the front patches printed to proudly advertise the Tatura Boomerang Bag brand.

Group founder Alena Mifka said the future looked optimistic, with many businesses positive about supporting the cause.

The group hopes to produce between 1000 and 2000 bags before distributing them throughout the town.

Volunteers are always welcome to attend a morning session from 9.15am to 11.15am or an evening session from 7pm to 8.30pm to help in whatever way they can.
