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...

Sue Coates- Yep! absolutely! Address to send to is at the bottom of the post! thanks!
Any Hill- YES PLEASE! All of those would be AMAZING!
Eager Beaver- THANKS! #family
Zoe C- all of the fabrics we use, are heading for landfill. We are not advocates of single use plastic, but its not our particular area of expertise at the moment. Thats a WHOLE other nightmare for us all!
JE Howard- Haha! Yep, merely a play on words…
THANKS all for your comments! gx

Eager Beaver – I agree that a lot of these things are unnecessary or should have been made from different materials in the first place – but they are not single use plastics. Most people don’t buy toys/deckchairs/tents with the intention of using them once and throwing them away. But once they do break, it’s great that they are being given a second lease of life!

Eager Beaver

JE Howard, missing the point. We should all feel guilty about single use plastics. So yes, this is shit we shouldn’t have. Awesome initiative.

Hi
Saw this on Twitter. I belong to Dorset Devils, a Bournemouth based volunteer litter picking group and we are always finding inflatables left on the beach. Can we send them to you free of charge ?
