We get a lot of our fabric as scrap form a local drysuit factory, but end up with smaller scraps of our own. It's all waterproof polyurethane coated nylon, and ends up in small pieces and strips.
We're looking for a way to get rid of it without throwing it away.
We also produce a fair amount of foam scraps. It's US made, closed cell foam (it doesn't absorb moisture or take a set). It'd be great to find a way to recycle this material by shredding it and/or finding a good use for it. *******
UPDATE: Thanks for the great suggestions and comments! Still seeking a solution that is less labor and time intensive.

What are the Eco Icons? For any EcoChallenge, choose one or more icons that best reflects the category of sustainability that is helped by an EcoSolution. If an EcoSolution results in a new way to recycle something, choose the Recycle Icon; if an EcoSolution results in less waste production, choose the Reduce Waste Icon. A new water conservation method may represent multiple icons. You decide! If your EcoChallenge does not fall under any of the Icons, please let us know so we can create a new one!
