Amarildo Silva is 23 years old and lives in Paraíba, Brazil. He works as a store cashier during the day, but what has captured the world’s attention is his simple, yet valuable, contribution to sustainability.

In his spare time, he collects and transforms discarded tires into eco-friendly animal beds. With the help of his family, he gathers every tire he can find on the streets or in dumps.

He cleans them, paints them, and adds a small circular mattress to make comfortable beds for pets.

He started selling them through ​​​​​​​Instagram and he quickly became famous.

Over 2 years Amarildo sold more than 500 pieces.

What began as a way to make some extra money for his family...
Turned into a valuable product that also helps the environment.
