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

Hi! We have an old paddling pool which we have cleaned up but not sure what your cleanliness before sending criteria is and if it’s still good enough to be reused? Thank you x

What a BRILLIANT idea! I am so happy to send you our paddling pool and know it can be re-used as a fabulously funky bag! I don’t think you should even need to reimburse for postage-I would hope that people are delighted to support your venture and stop plastic going to landfill or littering beaches. Well done guys.

Do you reimburse shipping from the US? Thanks!!

Can you set up a store in the U.S?!!! Would love to see this take here! We need to reuse so much of our waste! Also, maybe you could put specialized collection bins around your area? This would help with more of it going to you instead of in the waste.
