To sew reusable bags to distribute, in conjunction with Plastic Bag Free Northland, to the Whangarei Grower's Market, the Regent Countdown Supermarket Project and Bin Inn Kamo, as supply allows. The bags will not necessarily have to be returned - the main point is that they are used.
They have some machines and equipment ready to go, plus a supply of fabric. It doesn't matter if people can't sew - there is cutting/ ironing/ assembling. They invite anyone to pop in or stay the whole time, or they will provide material to sew from home. A Boomerang Bags Whangarei Facebook page will be running soon.
