Rivendell SRC: Boomerang Bag project

Boomerang Bag project

This term’s SRC market stall will be held at the Concord Hospital Markets on Thursday, week 7. The SRC will be working toward making tie-dyed boomerang bags to sell at the market stall. Boomerang bags are reusable carry bags that have been crafted from upcycled old t-shirts.

With this in mind, the SRC would like to request donations of old t-shirts that you or your family members don’t wear anymore. These have to be t-shirts that you wouldn’t mind being cut-up, paint-splattered and refashioned into reusable bags. The SRC will have a working bee later in the term to make these no-sew boomerang bags, and sell them at the upcoming market stall.

The SRC will accept t-shirts of any size and t-shirts of different colours. Lighter t-shirts are preferable as they can be tie-dyed more effectively, but the SRC will also accept dark, coloured and patterned t-shirts. Donations can be left in the donation box in the Lawson building, or at the front office of the school.

Who knows- you may want to buy back your upcycled old t-shirt at the market stall!
