Hemp Big Bean

A TreeHugger reader liked the organic hemp/cotton sofa we recently profiled, but felt the cost was a bit of stretch for her purse. Entirely understandable. Well, this Bean Bag, while certainly not having the aesthetic of the sofa, is 27 times cheaper! It has a hemp cover and passes up on the traditional polystyrene beads. The filling for this bag is pre-consumer recycled scrap foam, that has been shredded. In a nice twist, the chair is vacuum packed for shipping, which means the truck gets to transport more than air, which the case with styrofoam based bean bags. $190 for the single chair. Lounger and sofa also available. ::The Big Bean [by WM]
