THE BURLEIGH Heads community has been in a flap attending sewing bees to protect the environment.
Two locals are leading the charge, creating “Boomerang Bags” to be placed in the Burleigh business district as a free, sustainable alternative to plastic bags.
Co-Founders Tania Potts and Jordyn de Boer gained support from local businesses, as well as the City of Gold Coast, schools and the community who donated their time to source material and sew bags hand-stamped with ‘Borrow and Bring Back’.
