Attend a sewing bee for Boomerang Bags on January 26, 1:30 p.m.

Boomerang Bags invites you to its next event, as sewing bee on Saturday, January 26, 1:30-4:30 p.m., at New Art Center in Newtonville. 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). Boomerang 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. Find more information at
