The Market is banning single use plastic bags, and have teamed up with Boomerang Bags to provide an alternative.
Boomerang Bags works to reduce the use of plastic bags by engaging local communities in the making of Boomerang Bags – community made using recycled materials, Boomerang Bags provide a free, fun, sustainable alternative to plastic bags.
By getting involved, you are participating in a national movement that celebrates a local grassroots initiative, community building and sustainability.
Pop by today and find out more about volunteering, or volunteer for a two hour sewing shift and whip up a few bags before you go shopping. Sewing machines will be provided and you will need to register here to volunteer for a sewing shift.
Sewing sessions times:
- Fri 1 September 10am-12.15pm OR 12pm-2pm
- Sat 2 September 10am-12.15pm OR 12pm-2pm
- Sun 3 September 10am-12.15pm OR 12pm-2pm
You can also drop fabric and your own old fabric bags off for recycling in the Boomerang Bags box, located at the Market Office.
