The local group have set themselves a substantial challenge in seeking to ensure every household in Armstrong Creek has 2 x re-usable Boomerang Bags. Over the coming months, the group will be seeking extra sewers via promotions at the Armstrong Creek Shopping Centre, Local Community Market and Social Media and will be holding sewing bees at the Armstrong Creek East Community Hub.
How it works
Each Boomerang Bag is handmade by community groups, schools and volunteers from the local community using donated materials. Regular ‘sewing bees’ provide an opportunity for the community to come together and contribute to a positive environmental initiative.
