Swing to Higher Quality

Since introduction in November 2016, our Heavy Weight Canvas Bags have been our best sellers.

It is absolute proof that cost is becoming a smaller influence on the buying decisions of consumers.

Savvy consumers know that a cheap bag is a very short term proposition, whereas a product with better construction and design will serve them for longer.

Spending more actually saves you money... especially when quality is sacrificed to meet a price point.

Next time you're considering buying something (not just reusable bags) ask what the overall cost might be; compared to the price.

Oberon Boomerang Bags

Oberon in regional NSW has recently launched the Boomerang Bag concept.

Boomerang Bags are available free-of-charge to anyone needing a bag.

The first community store to stock the bags is Foodworks.

Oberon Rotary member Brenda Lyon said "through Boomerangs we can work towards shifting society's throw-away mentality to a more sustainable revolution of reuse - one community, needle and thread at a time!"

Great concept.
