Aussie founders Tania and Jordyn were ordinary people looking for a solution to plastic pollution.
The answer stared them in the face, from the one million plastic bags being used every minute, the 10.46 million of tonnes of fabric waste created each year, and the willingness and generosity of people from all fabrics of society to do something about it. They created a platform that supports the diversion of post-consumer material (waste) into reusable bags to replace plastic bags and most importantly, start conversations.
The initiative spread like wildfire, and is now in over 1,000 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!
In 2017 Boomerang Bags partnered with Jack Johnson who matched donations to Boomerang Bags dollar for dollar.
