Although cork trees are renewable, why not use up something that is usually just a huge problem for the landfills and environment? How about this terrific idea – a Corkboard Alternative Using Old Car Tires!
Let’s roll those tires into a better reincarnation! You’ve gotta try out this Corkboard Alternative Using Old Car Tires!
For over a year, we’ve experimented with aesthetic and practical applications of rubber granules from recycled tires. Why use granules made from recycled tires? Mainly for two reasons:
- Used tires are a serious burden for the environment, and they are highly underutilized,
- Rubber granules are a practical (although difficult to process) & durable construction material.
We make everything by hand. We carefully mix granules with glue and put the resulting “pulp” into an appropriate mold – in this case, it was an old picture frame. After few hours of drying, our Corkboard Alternative was ready!
Terrific idea! Here’s another great upcycled tire idea – Tire Sandals!
