Upcycled Tyres


This past weekend I became a Bathurst widow as my husband made his annual pilgrimage to the mountain for the Bathurst 1000 car race. Similar to a Vegas trip, what happens on the mountain stays on the mountain except for the evidence of smokey, dirty unwashed belongings which return home with a red-eyed and heavy-headed husband. I generally dare not ask…

But one thing I do know about car races is that they sure go through a lot of tyres, so what happens to them? Well some are reused or up-cycled into the following, not bad hey?!

Tired Lounge by Leo Kempf

Recycled Tyre Pots by Ecoco

Recycled Tyre Moroccan Placemats by State of Green

Recycled Car Tyre Hanging Pots by The Small Garden

And who doesn’t love the old tyre swing, easy and fun, a sure fire winner!

But if you prefer extra horse power try this Horse Tyre Swing, Fancy!
