Community Building: The Story of Boomerang Bags

  • 18 Jul 2022
  • 7:00 PM - 9:30 PM
  • Lindfield Seniors Community Hall, 259 Pacific Hwy and Zoom


Registration is closed

This month we'll hear about Boomerang Bags from Jordyn de Boer. Jordyn and fellow co-founder, Tania Potts, created a platform that supports the diversion of post-consumer material (waste) into reusable bags to replace plastic bags and most importantly – start conversations. Boomerang Bags is creating communities united by a common goal: plastic waste reduction.

The initiative spread enthusiastically, and is now in over 1100 communities worldwide. Hundreds of thousands of plastic bags have been saved from landfill, and behaviour change went way beyond the bag to other single-use plastics and sustainable living. Not to mention the immeasurable social impact of the conversations, connections, and new friendships created in the process!

Perhaps it’s not about the plastic bag at all.

Fully vaccinated members are welcome to join us in person at Lindfield Hall, or you can dial in on Zoom.

Please register if you are attending in person.

SUPPER IS BACK! We will serve supper, tea and coffee in the hall after the speaker.

We will also have an everything swap during supper for all your excess useful stuff that will help reduce waste –  plants, crops, preserves, cloth shopping bags, drink bottles, reusable straws, books, etc. Please remember: Anything you bring that is not swapped/taken must go back home with you!
