Inflatable amnesty aims to turn beach toys into trendy bags

Island based handbag designers want your popped and unwanted beach toys. 

Wyatt and Jack create sustainable bags and accessories from up-cycled beach deckchair canvas and retired bouncy castle vinyl PVC.

Their clients include Jack Wills, Surfers Against Sewage and Amnesty International.

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

“After this year’s disastrous attempt at having our own paddling pool in the garden, (our cat pierced the sides of it within two 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 end 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.”

The designers will either collect your inflatable from a courier service, or if it’s a smaller item, stick it in the post and they will refund your postage.
