Your Accessories Made From Upcycled Tyre Tubes - What a Great Idea

I came across this little business a little while ago and I thought it was just a fabulous idea. Based in Byron Bay, UPCYCLED Tyre Tube Accessories was a concept developed by Micha and Marlen following a road trip through Australia in August 2012. Along the way the duo experienced a flat tyre, and while waiting for the dealer to fix it they came across a mountain of old tyres and inner tubes. Until this day they had given little thought to where old tyres were put, sent into landfill or worse. Inspired by saving these tyres from a dismal existence somewhere under the ground, the two started playing with the material and creating creative goods out of the product.

The result, amazing and interesting accessories that help towards sustainability and reducing waste. Belts, wallets, jewellery, bags and laptop bags are just some of their amazing tyre inventions.

I just had to share these guys with you because I think that their idea is very unique and that we could all take a leaf from their books when considering recycling and re-using, for amazing and fashionable purposes too.
