The initiative, which began as a part-time job, has become an active commitment to environmental protection. Amarildo Silva from Paraiba, Brazil, wanted to find a way to add some money to the cashier’s income. Seeing a lot of wasted trash on the road, he came up with the idea of reusing old tires.
Whenever he has free time, Amarildo gives them new life by collecting abandoned tires and turning them into special animal beds. To date he has already sold over 500 pieces.
Although he mainly ships to Brazil, his efforts are very popular and have already received orders from Europe, North America and Asia. In addition to the animal beds, he also added flowerpots and trash cans to his portfolio. His work was so popular that he is now required to talk to young people in various public places.
Amarildo Silva lives in Paraiba, Brazil. He found a way to help the environment while making something that animals love. He collects as many old scrap tires as possible.
Then he turned the tire into a very convenient one and would wonder why no one had thought of it before. He makes differently designed animal beds so that each one is unique. It also adds a round mattress for extra comfort.
Result? Beds of these colorful and charming sleeping animals.
