How you can help build
a better Bass Coast
FOLLOWING the success of the first Bass
Coast Boomerang Bags sewathon last No -
vember, another is being held, this time at
the Wonthaggi Library on January 14.
The local boomerang bags group has been
sewing bags for about five months and has
distributed bags to a number of shops in In-
verloch and Wonthaggi.
Shopkeepers and customers have given a
very positive response to the bags.
The aim is to reduce the use of plastic bags
and the amount of plastic pollution.
Belinda, one of the managers at Green
Heart Organics in Inverloch is enthusiastic.
“They’re fantastic. Lots of people are using
them and returning them. We have lowered
our plastic bag use noticeably.”
The sewathon at Wonthaggi Library runs
from 10am to 2pm on Saturday, January 14.
Anyone is welcome to come along and help
cut out, iron or sew.
