ECOS Makes Boomerang Bags to Help Environment
The Westhill High School ECOS club has been working on a new project by sewing reusable bags called “Boomerang Bags”. The idea for the creation of these bags originated in Australia after two young girls started a conversation about plastic waste, such as plastic bags, and how much is produced each year and that it keeps damaging our environment. The idea was that if they could start creating reusable bags they would spread awareness about the use of plastic bags and how it keeps harming our precious environment. They decided to name these bags “Boomerang Bags”. The idea quickly spread and has reached several different countries and communities, such as our own. Boomerang Bags have reached over 800 communities worldwide!
Now, our ECOS club is in on this amazing movement. The bags are a little larger than a regular grocery bag and are made from recycled cloth, so when the bags are sold, ECOS will receive 100% of the profits, which they can put towards even more projects in the future to help save our earth. These bags come with a small patch on them that has the Boomerang Bag logo but it has been redesigned and improved by the Westhill Art Club. We are very proud of their design. Our club would greatly appreciate if you could donate any fabric, such as tablecloths or durable fabric, to our club to make more of these bags. These bags will soon be on sale to the public, and we encourage you to purchase or make a bag and say no to plastic!
