Brazilian Artist Uses The Used Tires That People Throw In The Streets To Create Beds For Animals

They say that no beauty shines brighter than that of a good heart. After all, good deeds always pay off!  Amarildo Silva is certainly one with a good heart, as the young Brazilian craftsman has already dedicated one year and six months giving comfort and joy to animals. He turns old tires into comfortable and decorated beds and the good news is that he is not willing to stop.

Everything started two years ago when Amarildo was looking for a way to make extra income using the trash that people throw in the streets. He always enjoyed making handicrafts with materials that were no longer used and would be otherwise discarded.

By creating something new out of it, he not only contributed to the well-being of the environment but also earned a few extra dollars in the process.

Amarildo realized that old tires were being used as a refuge by the dogs that live in the streets, and came up with the idea to bring them the feeling of home and make it more comfortable for animals.

The artist collects the old tires that he finds on the streets, takes them home and puts all the stuff in his backyard. He dedicated one of his rooms for storing these tires.

After separating the tires, he cuts, washes and paints them. He loves to draw a unique design for each tire and write the name of the animal to whom the bed will belong to.

The artist united two things that he always loved to do: helping animals and crafts. Amarildo believes that this project will contribute to a more sustainable world and he will present even more innovative ideas for generating a socio-environmental impact.

They are great - but due to the weight the delivery cost would be prohibitive to selling online. How much postage for a tyre?
