Ethical Bean Bags for Your Living Room

Have you ever considered the impact the average bean bag has on the environment? Most bean bags are filled with balls of polystyrene and hard-celled plastics, which can harm wildlife when littered, due to how long it takes to biodegrade. 

The manufacturing of polystyrene can cause tremendous amounts of hazardous waste, dangerous for water sources, wildlife, and even humans. As well as this, the production also contributes to global warming.

The material of bean bags exteriors can be crafted from things like leather, or unethically sourced fabrics including cotton.  Any materials derived from animals including wool or suede are not vegan.. 

Anything sourced that isn’t organic or upcycled or from businesses that have little human rights for their employees would not be ethically obtained. The bean bags sold by eTHikel are designed and produced by The Big Beanbag Company. You can rest assured knowing that all products are sustainable and eco-friendly.

The bean bags on our site are handmade in Cornwall, using only vegan, and sustainable materials that have been sourced organically. Strong double stitching is implemented to high quality, using recycled plastic bottles.

The outer shells are created from upcycled cotton woven fabrics, available in all-natural colours. Materials that are used are those that would otherwise end up in landfills, so by investing in our sustainable bean bags you are helping to fight against climate change as well as global warming, promoting a more organic lifestyle. 

The bean fillings are the only bean bags in the world created from BioFoam, made from vegetable-based recyclables. All BioFoam is CO2 neutral, non-hazardous, hygienic, light-weight & durable.

All BioFoam is completely compostable and recyclable.
