Go Green: Brazilian Guy Transforms Discarded Tires Into Eco-Friendly Animal Beds

As the world is getting overpopulated with people, the more landfills are being overfilled with waste. What we all need to do is to understand our impact on this planet and educate coming generations to be responsible and find solutions to minimize waste.

Even though humans are the main factor of this concerning problem, there are some of them who have the courage to stand out from the crowd and create their own inspiring story. Among them is a 23-year-old Brazilian craftsman who is doing a great job at transforming waste into value.

This craftsman is Amarildo Silva, who is 23 years old and lives in Paraíba, Brazil. Amarildo works as a store cashier during the day, but in the meantime, his contribution to the environment is to be praised.

What he does is he collects and transforms discarded tires into eco-friendly animal beds. I already love the idea! With the support of his family, he collects every tire he can find on the streets or in dumps. With some cleaning, painting, and small circular mattresses, he transforms old tires into comfortable beds for pets.

Amarildo started selling them through Instagram, thus becoming popular for what he does. Over two years he sold over 500 pieces.

Let’s have a peek at his creative and wonderful work:
