Looking for an alternative for refilling beanbag chairs. Tired of refilling with styrofoam which doesn't last and when old can't be taken to recycling.

If you use a paper shredder the shredded paper works great for refilling bean bags also. When the paper gets flat recycle and fill again:)
HEY TRY USING THE PLASTIC BAGS YOU GET WITH ALMOST EVERTHING THESE DAYS MOSTLY GROCERY BAGS. THEY ARE RE FLUFFABLE
How about dried beans? Then you really would have a "bean" bag chair!
You could buy polystyrene beans like everyone else. You can bean bag refill online in the UK from http://www.bean-bag.co.uk
Try www.polybeads.co.uk they are pretty good on price
Let's face it putting beans or rice in a bean bag makes it way to heavy. Buying refill beans is also expensive. I have put the packing peanuts in mine but they got flat really fast. So I started putting the missing or mismatched socks from the laundry in my sons bean bag. But I like the idea of the plastic bags, should go well with my socks.

Way, way, way back when, they used to stuff homemade mattresses with pine needles - free stuffing if you live around pine trees. I do a lot of quilting - I am stuffing and old air mattress with those bits and pieces of leftover batting that are too small for anything else - so free stuffing - look around and then think outside the box to see stuffing from things you would have never thought of before.
The stuffing from old pillows or foam mattresses is great for stuffing beanbags. Don't chuck them away, cut them up, or pull them apart into handfuls and fill up the beanbag. No choking hazard and free!
i am thinking of using wood pellets for a pellet stove. fairly cheap. cheaper than the refill styrofoam but could be heavy.
