Bean Bag Filling

We fill our bean bags with environmentally friendly Green Beans® - a recycled polystyrene filling that performs exactly like standard polystyrene but is better for the planet.

If you are purchasing two or more Lujo bean bags (any combination) you have the option to add bean bag filling to your order.

This will cost you more than buying the filling in a standard retail outlet (see suggested retailers below), but you won’t have to do the filling yourself - they will arrive filled and ready to relax in.

NOTE: We deliver filled bean bags FREE OF CHARGE, NEW ZEALAND-WIDE


If you are opting to fill you bean bags yourself, why not check out these options for purchasing beans:

  • The Warehouse
  • Briscoes
  • Kmart
  • Bunnings
  • Para Rubber


Filling volumes can vary by personal preference. Some like them firmer and more structured, some prefer them softer so they can sink right in.

Note: Beans will compress slightly over time, making the bean bags softer and more comfortable with use. We recommend topping them up as required to get the bean bag to a level of comfort you are happy with. This will also help maintain the shape and structure of the product.

All Lujo bean bags come with detailed filling instructions. 

It is a simple process, requiring two people. Basically, one person holds the liner open, the other person slowly pours in the beans. 

After the work is done you can sit back, sink in…and relax


WARNING: Polystyrene Beans are dangerous if swallowed or inhaled by children.

For the safety of young children, we use safety zips with a removable puller. If you have young children we recommend removing the puller on the liner once filed, so children cannot access the polystyrene beans.

Should you need to open the liner in future, simply attach the puller or slide a paper clip through the hole in the zip slider and use it to open and close zipper.

If you have questions about product safety please don’t hesitate to contact us.


If you are looking for an environmentally friendly option for bean bag filling, you may like to use Green Beans. This product is made in New Zealand using 100% recycled polystyrene and can be also be recycled at the end of its life if required.

Green Beans go through a quality control process to ensure the recycled polystyrene is clean, dry, and free from residue. The resulting product looks and feels slightly different to bean bag filling made from virgin material, however even side-by-side the differences are negligible.
