Finding a supplier of those little white beans used in beanbags is not always an easy task! The volume of EPS Polystyrene beanbag filling makes it horrifically expensive to ship over long distances. These days, many manufacturers of beanbag covers are selling the covers without the filling to reduce shipping costs. But this leaves many purchasers asking themselves, where can I buy the beanbag filling. Here is a list of companies in Canada that offer beanbag filling for sale.
Walmart Canada: Walmart has been operating in Canada since 1994 and with four hundred stores throughout Canada, is sure to be the most convenient supplier. Walmart sells the Lounge & Co brand of beanbag filling in one hundred litre bags (3.5 Cubic Feet) for $19.97.
Home Depot: The Home Depot Canada has 182 stores located in convenient locations throughout Canada. Home Depot offers a two-pound bag of beanbag beans for $19.95. We estimate the volume of this package to be approximately 3.5 cubic feet. Home Depot offers Free Shipping for online customers, and Canada’s second largest network of bricks and mortar stores.
Amazon Canada: Amazon offers a range of different size beanbag filling ranging in price from $13.98 to $70.20. At the cheaper end of the scale there is a thirteen-ounce size bag. Whilst for $70.20 you can order a two-pack of 100 litre bags from the online store.
BeanBag Factory: The Bean Bag Factory website offers an excellent solution to anyone requiring larger volumes of filling. They offer a fourteen cubic foot package (around 400 litres) for just $120.99. You can order through their website and if you live in Ontario or Quebec you will receive Free Shipping. They have fifteen stores throughout Canada, or you can visit their warehouse located in Mississauga by appointment.
ULINE: ULine based in Milton, Ontario is a family owned business offering a range of packaging products throughout North-America. The company offers a five cubic feet bag of beanbag ‘peanuts’ with prices ranging from $57 to $64 depending on the quantity.
MYBEANBAG: My Bean Bag Canada is an online store that offers beanbag filling in seven different sizes. This is a very convenient way to purchase, because these bladders or inner liners, provide a second layer of protection, and you don’t have to pour the beans into the bag, because this job has been done for you. If you are looking to purchase this type of filling, be sure to check the cover you are filling has a long three to four-foot zipper, because you may have difficulty inserting the bladder into the cover if the cover is fitted with a standard zipper. The covers are manufactured from a fabric that is 70% polyester, and 30% cotton. The fabric is treated with an AEGIS anti-bacterial, anti-mould solution. The filling supplied is a mixture of virgin beans (70%) and recycled beads (30%).
KIJIJI: Kijiji is Canada’s largest online classifieds website. Here you will find numerous options, however, at the time of publication, there was just one on offer, which was ten cubic feet of beans for $75. These are high-density beans which may last longer than larger beans and are around 3-5-5 millimetres in size.
Lazy Life Paris: Lazy Life Paris offers a Canadian manufactured bag of beans in a convenient one-hundred-litre size (3.55 Cubic Feet) for $39.00. The company uses fully recyclable EPS Polystyrene which is fire retardant. You can order through their online store and have the beans delivered anywhere in Canada within four to six days.

If you live in Canada and you have EPS Polystyrene beanbag filling that you no longer require, you can drop off your unwanted filling at a Dart Recycling Centre.
