Boomerang Bags is part of a global effort (860 participating communities) to reduce waste and incorporate re-usable shopping bags into daily living.
The Newton Boomerang Bag community was started this fall by Lisa Monahan (Newton resident/business owner), and Olivia Scheff (NSHS student). BB bags began in Australia when two women who were interested in doing something to help the environment created a model that could be used all over the world. Volunteers from all walks of life get together to make re-useable ‘boomerang bags’ using recycled materials, as a means to provide a sustainable alternative to plastic bags. Here is a link to the BB website for more info http://boomerangbags.org.
