The Boomerang bag project was brought to Katikati by Jizzy Green. It is part of a worldwide Boomerang bag campaign to stop the use of plastic bags.
Jizzy is a local environmentalist and teacher. She inspired Room 27 to write to local businesses to tell them about the use of plastic bags and how they can kill sea animals and turtles. We have been making our own bags for other classes to use.
We delivered the bags this week and we hope to see our local community get behind this great project! We need to write more letters now so that other businesses take up the Boomerang challenge!
Let's make Katikati plastic bag free!!
We found a way to make our own bags without sewing!
We had lots of helpers getting the bags into the shops downtown.
