Brazilian Artist Amarildo Silva Recycles Old Tyres Into Beds For All Our Furry Friends

by Lana

A Brazilian artist has combined his love for recycling with his love for animals and created a new line of pet beds that will make paw-rents and animal lovers everywhere go ‘aww.’ 

Already armed with the ability to turn trash into treasures and a desire to clean up his streets, Amarildo Silva saw a golden opportunity in the excess used tyres piling up. With a wash, a fresh coat of paint, and some sewing skills, Silva gave these tyres the makeover that would make them a must-have for pet owners everywhere. The project turned trash into homes, an endeavour that is great for the environment and not bad as an extra source of income either. With no plans to stop anytime soon, Silva is on a mission to create the purr-fect new beds for our furry friends.

It all started two years ago when Silva saw potential in these unwanted tyres.

And the results are too adorable not to share.

Cats and dogs alike are stretching out in their new comfy beds.

And resting their eyes.

The beds are a hit with both mums and pups.

And are the best place to hide their toys.

Getting ready for a cat-nap or two.

With their tyre frame, the beds are versatile enough to follow their pets on adventures.
