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, at Shenstone Community Library, we have been collecting inflatables since the end of summer from the villagers after having been inspired by The Sisters Against Plastic talk we had earlier in the year. We have collected at least 10 and would like them to be couriered to yourselves. Can you let us know how this would happen and if we need to weigh them ?
Thank you
Ps we love what you are doing

Hi
Do you accept airbeds, I have several leaky ones.
Also, how do you refund the postage?
Many thanks
Susan
