Wyatt & Jack // Inflatable Amnesty

 I've *nearly* come to terms now, with the fact that I've become known locally as 'bag lady'- obviously my family think thats hilarious!

People leave their old windbreaks, trampolines, rubber dinghies and all sorts of other beach paraphernalia, outside our workshop all the time!

After this years disastrous attempt at having our own paddling pool in the garden [our cat pierced the sides of it, within 2 weeks!!] it reminded me of an idea i had a couple of years ago, but haven't had a chance to put into practice...

The Wyatt & Jack Inflatable Amnesty, is based on the same idea, that lots of beach goers, would be ending up throwing quite a few broken inflatables and water toys, into bins either before the end of their holidays, or on their way home...

 

So... THIS YEAR, If you have an inflatable that has a puncture that you can't repair, or is intended for the bin- send it our way and we will turn it into bags !

Like this pizza print lilo and blue rubber dinghy that were left on our workshop doorstep earlier this week...

Wyatt & Jack Inflatable Amnesty send us  your broken beach toys don't send them to landfill sustainable brand

Wyatt & Jack Inflatable Amnesty Send Us your broken inflatables 2018

We will either collect it up from you using a courier service, or, [if its a smaller item], stick it in the post and we will refund your postage...

Hi, we are on holiday in France and have found a few small inflatables that are in the holiday house we are staying that have come to the end of their life. ( a pink flamingo, a lilo and a ring ) We are travelling back on the train so will be hard to carry back to the UK for posting to you. Do you accept post from France? I have no idea how much it might cost to post these items.
Many thanks

Hello!

Is the amnesty still running? I have a paddling pool I’d like to send in for recycling.

Think what you’re doing is great – such a worthwhile scheme. Thanks.

Hi there
I’ve got an Ikea Jall plastic material from a washing basket. I know it’s not an inflatable but wondered if it would be any good for you guys? I think what you do is ace!

I live in Surrey and have rescued from a friend for recycling a medium size paddling pool which has unfortunately split on one seam. I reckon I can squeeze it into a large paper posting sack to post to you. Is this ok or would you prefer pick up by your couriers?
