Why The Eco Bean Stool?


The Big Beanbag Company are working hard to make sure all their products have minimal impact on the environment. 

Handmade in Cornwall.


BioFoam® is CO2 neutral, non-hazardous, hygienic, light-weight & durable. It’s the perfect environmentally friendly alternative to harmful styrofoam beads found in most other bean bags.


The Big Beanbag Company use a 100% cotton weave fabric, in neutral shades, that are made to the highest quality.

The bean stools are soft, comfy, durable and hard wearing. The outer bag has been tested to over 26,000 rubs.

BioFoam® filling is conveniently held in an inner calico zipped bag, so the outer bag can be easily removed for washing.


We LOVE Spreading the environment-conscious message to the world. Earth day is everyday!


Polystyrene contains the toxic substances Styrene and Benzene, suspected carcinogens, and neurotoxins that are hazardous to humans. Some estimates put the lifespan of styrofoam in a landfill around 500 years, and some put it way beyond that.

Most bean bags are filled with a manmade material known as expanded polystyrene (EPS). EPS is a hard-celled plastic very similar to Styrofoam, which is extruded polystyrene.

Besides bean bag beads, EPS is used for disposable coffee cups and as cushioning material for packaging and shipping.

BioFoam® has many great properties, one of which is durability, so the need for top-ups will be low. However, we know that you’re going to spend a lot of time using your bean bag, so if you do need to top up the filling, we can provide you with a refill tube to use at home.
