There are literally mountains of tires and inner tubes that still exist in dumps all around the world. Did you know in the USA that 300 million tires are disposed of each year.? Rubber is one of the hardest things to decompose.
During my last trips, I was lucky enough to run into a great couple with a great mission. They are tired of the waste on their island and looking to reuse and recycle as much as they can. Their main focus is using rubber from tires. They have turned this rubber that was once destined to be in a landfill into gorgeous jewelry and accessories. They call it reincarnated art.
This concept goes hand and hand with one of our beliefs on how we can help make the world a better place. We are glad that we are now able to sell their work and help spread their idea across the world. They have made beautiful rubber earrings, rubber bracelets, chokers, purses, wallets, and many other items.
All of their products are handmade using no fuel powered machines. They just have creative hands and even stronger minds.
This mission helps tap into a resource that is slowly destroying our earth. I hope you help support their cause by purchasing some of their product. It is a great mission to give a second life to what would otherwise be sent to a landfill.
All of the proceeds will be used to purchase more of their rubber products to help spread the word.
