Recycling bubble wrap into a sturdy seat cushion makes for a comfortable ride. 

You can breathe new life into an unused section of discarded bubble wrap salvaged from packaging. Take a section of wrap and reuse it by recycling bubble wrap as the filling for a sturdy seat cushion. Just measure and cut out a section of bubble wrap to fit your truck or tractor's seat for a magic carpet ride that feels like you're literally riding on air. It rivals or surpasses more expensive, store bought seat covers of this type. Use either duct tape or, better, adhesive fastener straps to secure the wrap to the seat.
