FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS 


What makes your products green?

Our Cushions and Cubes are green inside and out. Unlike conventional ottomans and pillows, which use things like toxic polystyrene beads or synthetic upholstery foam, we use shredded junk mail and other repurposed paper for filling. Our cases are handmade in the USA using natural fibers such as 100% wool and organic cotton.



I already recycle my junk mail. How is reuse better?

Recycling turns paper into new products through an industrial process that requires environmental resources and produces more  waste. Reuse, however, gives a new purpose to materials that are already in front of us, like junk mail, redirecting them from landfills. Reuse also reduces the consumption of raw or virgin materials used to manufacture products.



Where do you get your junk mail?

We source our junk mail through Philadelphia offices and residential apartments. We also collect theater playbills, museum brochures, or other repurposed paper. Contact us if your office or organization would like to turn your repurposed paper into furniture.

How do I clean my Cushion or Cube? 

What if it gets wet?

This product is stuffed with shredded paper. Just like any paper in your home (such as books), keep the paper dry. Just like other paper items, you should not store it in an overly humid environment where the paper can absorb water from the air. If you should spill liquid on this product, simply open the zipper, empty the shredded paper, and replace with dry filling. You can use shredding from your own home shredder, or order a bag of shredding from us.



Are Cushions & Cubes hypo-allergenic?

Cushions & Cubes are stuffed with shredded junk mail, which is already in most American homes. The shredding is contained in a zippered case. If, however, you have allergic reactions to paper, shredded paper, and paper-related products, you may want to take caution.



Are Cushions & Cubes flame retardant?

Cushions & Cubes are not flame retardant. We strive for our products to be eco-friendly and non-toxic, so we do not add harsh chemical flame retardant sprays. Our products are stuffed with paper, so care should be exercised near open flame or with burning cigarettes.
