I remember watching an episode of the Discovery Channel’s “Dirty Jobs” when host Mike Rowe worked with a company that does tire recovery. They went out to a forest with beautiful scenery along the way. Then all of a sudden in a clearing, tens of thousands of illegally discarded tires. Stacks of them for as far as the eye could see. They spent all day loading a truck with precision to ensure they could fit at least 800 tires on board. They didn’t even put a dent in the pile.
I was appalled, to say the least, so I love finding products that take a commonly discarded material and turn it into something not only useful, but also beautiful. This recycled tire mirror has a tough, rugged exterior, pictured in great contrast to the flowers beside it. It’s not very large at 12″ x 14″, but its a great size for checking your makeup or hair. And if it takes a few old tires from discarded to delightful, I’m all for it.
Why It’s Green:
- Made of recycled tires
Have you seen any great products lately that are made of recycled materials? They don’t have to be decor products. Feel free to leave a comment and share it with us!
