Sit down, rest your tyred bum…

In my earlier post about the Priddy weekend I mentioned that Miss had bought a set of garden furniture, made in Thailand out of old tyres. Well here they are!

 

Tyre Furniture

They’re really comfortable, rugged and not at all bad to look at – which you might not think when you consider their parentage. It’s an exercise in recycling. There are massive stocks of old tyres in the world; some of them get shredded and mixed with aggregate to make road surfaces, some are used to sheet down hay and silage in farming, at least a few have been used by a work colleague to make a rubbery (that’s a rockery in his garden, using tyres coated in soil and cement for the structure) and loads and loads get dumped in landfill or in the hedgerows. These get sat on. 🙂
