Old tyres, new beds

We all love a feel-good story and this one’s a corker, because it not only benefits animals but the environment too.
Meet Amarildo Silva, a 23-year-old artist and entrepreneur from Brazil. In his spare time, Amarildo collects and transforms discarded tyres into animal beds. His family helps him find the old tyres and he then cleans and paints them, and adds a cushion for the pets to sleep on. Through the power of Instagram, he’s managed to sell over 500 beds in 2 years! We love the impact these eco-friendly animal beds are having on reducing waste on the planet.
