Dromana Community Bags
Over 3000 made locally!
Volunteers from all walks of life get together to make re-useable ‘boomerang bags’ we gather at Dromana on Mondays and Fridays to make bags using recycled materials, as a means to provide a sustainable alternative to plastic bags.
Bags are available at $2 donation which goes back into the project and supports the neighbourhood house programs including The Little Pantry and Second Bite - Ending Hunger, Ending Waste
We rely on volunteers who make the bags with love and joy we must ensure each bag is purchased with the intent to reduce the use of plastic bags on the peninsula and world wide and in no means commercially.
We make orders for events and conferences that will make an educational impact.
The wider Boomerang Bags ideals are subscribed to:-
Together we link hands globally to create a paradigm shift to a more connected and conscious society.

Aboriginal people of Australia are part of the oldest continuous living culture in history. Aboriginal people have a rich custom, lore and value system based on the sustainability of their spiritual connection, belonging, obligation and responsibility to care for the land, the people and the environment. Boomerang Bags respects and honours Aboriginal people and works to support their core values to protect the land and provide a healthy future for all living creatures.
Our sister group at Seawinds used their boomerang bags to fundraise enough to purchase these wonderful backpack swags as a gift for homeless people on the Mornington Peninsula (Victoria, AUS). The swags ensure a warm bed, security and a place to call home, particularly during the winter months.
