Man Creates Beds For Animals From Old Tires That He Finds In The Streets

Amarildo Silva has always had a passion for turning trash into things people could use again. Two years ago while he was trying to find a way to make money off of his passion, he realized he could turn the old tires littering the streets into pet beds.

Not only is Silva making money, but he is also reducing the amount of garbage littering the streets of Brazil.
