One man’s trash is another man’s treasure – but Amarildo Silva is turning other people’s trash into cute little beds for animals on and off the streets.
The 23-year-old Brazilian artist has been collecting discarded tires from the street and turning them into animal beds.
Silva, who lives in Campina Grande, Brazil, first got the idea for the recycled animal beds when he noticed how many stray dogs used tires as shelter on the street.
Silva starts the transformation process by cleaning off each tire, giving it a fresh coat of paint, and installing a tiny mattress into the center.
He started selling the tire beds two years ago as a means of keeping his city streets clean and making a little extra money for his family.
This led him to start his own business: Cãominhas Pets.
Since he started marketing his creations on Instagram, he has sold over 500 beds.
He even started turning the tires into flower pots and gardening containers.
When he is not tidying up the streets for his eco-friendly business, he volunteers by helping abandoned animals and mentoring young students at local public schools.
