More and more people are embracing the ‘Green Movement’. This means trying to help Mother Nature escape the harmful effects of pollution by minimizing ecological footprints and finding ways to lessen garbage. From Brazil, man named Amarildo Silva, 23, came up with a new and inspiring way help the environment and produce a cute item for sale from his hobby. Amarildo makes animal beds from old tires and the world is impressed with his talent.
The products of his hobby are now hot commodities. Amarildo is a cashier during the day so he makes his products at night. He makes animal beds from old tires. These beds are comfy and proof of that is his steady stream of satisfied customers. He finds his old tires from streets and landfills and he asks for his family’s help to get them. He goes through a tedious process of cleaning the tires and painting his unique designs on it. He fits a round mattress in the tire so the doggo resting on it will have a grand time relaxing.
What started as a hobby became a business. When he posted the beds he made on Instagram, it became popular and many ordered from him. In the two years he is selling, he sold more than 500 animal beds made from old tires. For now, he only delivers the beds to within Brazil though people from Europe, North America, and Asia already want to order from him. The best part of his hobby-turned-business is that the animals love the designs and the comfort the beds give.
Aside from his old tire animal beds, he also makes flower pots and containers. He also uses reusable materials for those. If that doesn’t keep him busy enough, he has different abandoned animals he is taking care of. The products of Amarildo have everyone talking because they aren’t only cute but they also become a means to minimize garbage from the side of Brazil.
