What to do with old bedding?
What can we do with old bedding? Re-use organisations in Bristol find it difficult to sell, even to give away. Sometimes it's because there are no fire labels, sometimes it's because they are old, and also, people just find second hand bedding a bit yucky. Even our survey of re-use professionals found that bedding is the number one thing people DONT want to get second hand. Shoes were second.
But bedding is an abundant resource - it must be useful for something. So Jess from Bristol ReUse Network, Fiona the Patchwork Junkie and Jennifer from the Sewing Skills Project got together to experiment.
