Australians use up to an estimated 4 billion light-weight plastic bags a year.

Greens Marine spokesperson Justin Field says the rising tide of plastic is choking oceans and marine life, polluting rivers and having a toxic impact on health and that of future generations.

Jindabyne Boomerang Bags is hosting their first construction Bee on Tuesday 11th of July from 10am at the Alpine Uniting Church Hall.

They say they would love for locals to come along, learn how to construct the bags and get involved with the initiative.

The initiative aims to reduce the use of plastic bags by engaging communities in making reusable Boomerang bags as a fun sustainable alternative.

Each bag is handmade by volunteers from the local community using donated, second hand materials.
