Struggling young artist turns old tires into gorgeous beds for stray animals

Note: The beds are gorgeous! I couldn't capture a link that DU would accept, so if someone can do me a favor and post the photo, I will be beholden to them.

The following story proves that only beautiful consequences arise when a personís creative passions and desire to create a better environment come together.

23-year-old Amarildo Silva loved animals as much as he loved the environment, so when he thought of an idea that will benefit both, he immediately sprang into action.

He began re-purposing old and used car tires by turning them into cute animal beds for pets and for the numerous strays in his neighborhood. This passion project of his was just perfect, as the young artist lives in the city of Campina Grande in Brazil where abandoned animals outnumber homeless people by over five times.

The idea of up-cycling old tires was born when Amarildo noticed that the stray dogs in his town loved to curl up inside discarded tires for the night. As an artist, he loved to repurpose abandoned materials and use his creativity to turn them into something useful, and at the same time, pleasing to the eyes.
