A local creating “Boomerang Bags” as part of a community initiative aimed at tackling plastic pollution are proud to tally up more than 600 bags so far.
Boomerang Bags Esperance make eco-friendly using recycled materials and raise awareness for sustainable alternatives to everyday plastic bags.
Through holding group sewing bees the group has raised its profile and amount of bags it can produce.
Their next sewing bee will be on Sunday, August 27 at 10am until 2pm at the Esperance Scout Hall.
Group representative Carmel Halls said the sewing bees would be an ongoing community event and encouraged anyone interested to join in.
The group hope to place bags at local supermarkets, dedicated schools, community groups and businesses on a “borrow and bring back basis”.
