Do you know what happens after a festival? Lots and lots of rubbish...lots and lots of tents left behind. This year, after the Festival of the Sun in Port Macquarie, NSW, one of the co-founders (Sybil)'s husband picked up about 15 tents with his dad just before the big rubbish truck went through to take everything to landfill. The beautiful group of volunteers from Boomerang Bags Port Macquarie has put their hand up to turn them into wetbags. We will be reducing landfill twice, once with the tents, and then again by using wetbags instead of plastic bags for children's muddy clothes, swimming gear etc. The wetbags will be sold as a fundraiser for both organisations.
There is lots of sewing to be done before the tents turn into wetbags, can you help? Do you have some free time? Get in touch with the beautiful people at Boomerang Bags. And thank you!
