Sustainable Bean Bag Filling

My mum bought Elliot a beautiful mustard Kip&co bean bag many years ago now. It got filled with polystyrene balls. When we moved to Wollangarra we left the bean bag at Mum and Dads.

When we returned, the bean bag was returned to us, but time and use had made it flat. And I refused to buy new polystyrene balls to fill it, so it sat flat in the spare room.

Until, Mum asked last week about filling it. I said I’d only fill it with an eco-option. So she did some googling and came across foam fill for beanbags. I called out local Clarke Rubber and found that they sell bags of crumbed foam off cuts for this exact purpose. We purchased a bag for $70, and used less than half to top up the bean bag. I think using something that is a waste product is a perfect way to fill your bean bags.
