Don’t Throw Out Those Old Pillows, EitherSeptember 26, 2009 at 9:01 am | Posted in Tips | 3 Comments
Here’s a handy tip from Green Prophet: “Pillows are made of not the best synthetic material for landfills. That plus the fact that pillow manufacturing companies recommend getting new ones every 6 months to 2 years. That can lead to a lot of unhealthy non-degradable fluff filling up our dumps.
“The good news is that there are plenty of wonderful ways to reuse your old pillows, just make sure that you wash them first…
“Use the stuffing to pad new pillows making them even firmer! Donate them to a local animal shelter. What isn’t fluffy enough for you is a pillow heaven for an unwanted puppy. Make decorative pillows for your living room and use the old pillows to stuff them. Save them for the next time you pack. Your dishes will never have a smoother move.”
