After a certain business magnate was elected as President of the United States, we thought we had seen it all. That was, however, until we stumbled across DIPP.

DIPP, a Byron Bay based company, has created the first ever biodegradable inflatable pool. Gone are the days of plastic blow-up pools that long outlive the people who buy them. DIPP’s pools are made of quality stuff, though will not last a lifetime, and this is one of the rare occasions we will be thankful for that feature.

The hero of this incredible product is, of course, the material, so please forgive us for giving you the complete run down of the material used for the DIPP pools. Ok, deep breath, here goes…

PVC (Polyvinyl Chloride) is up there with the world’s most widely produced synthetic plastics, and is used not only in crafting pipes, doors and windows, but also as the main material in the inflatables market. Conventionally-made inflatable pools are generally crafted from PVC, and as fun as they are for the people who splash around in them, they’re definitely not fun for the long-term health of us or the environment.

When breaking down (or rather, breaking up) PVC releases dioxin, a highly toxic chemical linked to development, immune, and reproductive problems respectively, as well as potentially leading to hormone disruption and cancer. Also, as POPs (persistent organic pollutants), these little toxic d-bags, as the POP name suggests, can unhealthily linger in our environment for a long, long time.

It’s not all doom and gloom, though; thanks to their revolutionary material, the DIPP pools will begin biodegrading in 3-5 years. The material we are talking about is TPU (Thermoplastic Polyurethane), which is a much more environmentally friendly alternative to PVC. Because of its manufacturing process, TPU can essentially be a heck of a lot better for the environment, and actually results in biodegradation rather than just broken up pieces of plastic.

After reading all about their wonder material and seeing the timeless pool prints and colours on offer, it’s no wonder the DIPP pools sell out quicker than Bunnings sausages on Sundays. DIPP even uses recyclable and compostable materials in their packaging as well, so you’ll feel good knowing your fun family time (or your fun boozing-with-friends time) won’t be causing extreme damage to you or our environment.

Meet Cassie, co-founder of DIPP, an inflatable pool company doing things a little differently.
“No one in the world has produced a biodegradable inflatable pool, so it was a huge mission of Raph and I's to make sure our material was our difference. Not only in the market but to make a difference to the environment”.
